THROUGH THE 



The story of a year at college is a difficult thing to tell. It is an elusive mixture of 
fact and sentiment which means something a little different to each student. To all 
of us who attended Duke during the year ending June, 1940, many things happened. 
All of our activities however important or trivial centered themselves around our 
University. In these pages we hope to perpetuate the memory which all of us will 
hold dear. Nineteen hundred and forty has been an exceptional year. It marks the 
beginning of a new era. Great progress during the hundred years of its existence has 
been made by Duke. The influence of this forward surge of the University in the 
national community has been felt by all of us privileged to be here. New buildings 
were constructed and dedicated, their presence constituting a strengthening bulwark 
to the physical unity of the campus. Prominent additions to the faculty presented 
greater stimulus to the intellectual activity of the student body, incentives to greater 
things and finer actions all about us. We must inevitably come to love this place

YEAR AT DUKE 

which has done so much for us. The traditions of Duke are unique in that they can 
best be described as forces of accomplishment. We somehow feel that all men who 
have attended this school must share a keen pleasure in the manifest activity and 
growth which permeates the entire University. 

The 1940 Chanticleer accepts with pleasure its obligation of preserving a pic- 
torial record of the year. It has attempted to gather all sorts of material within the 
covers of a book which will recall to many of us the things we did while here. We 
have tried to be informal in the sense of getting a rather intimate pictorial record 
of our activities. We have attempted a narrative style of presentation, feeling that 
we are telling a story. We sincerely hope that the following pages will serve their 
intended function. 

It was a great year, and a very entertaining and delightful life while we lived it. 
Great unrest prevailed throughout the world, the major nations of Europe at war 
with one another, a general conflagration threatening, yet here at Duke our lives 
revolved in an academic orbit of intense mutual interest and group undertakings. 
We joined fraternities, became members of honor societies, studied, read books, en- 
gaged in athletic contests in which most we were victorious, danced, played, and 
were happy. Duke University — June, 1940. 



We present to you, the Student Body, this, the 1940 
Chanticleer. For nine months we have photo- 
graphed, written, rephotographed and rewritten, in 
an effort to preserve for you, through the media of 
pictures and type, the story of a year at Duke. To 
us the events of this particular year are unique. 
Some have seemed important, some of only passing 
value, but the joys and sorrows we experienced can 
never be relived except in our memories. We 
want you to see this year in retrospect, not as a 
mere record of events, but as a warm and living 
record of a most important period in our lives. 
With this in mind, we present the information and 
pictures that we think will truthfully represent col- 
lege life from the student's point of view. 

Our story is told in as informal a manner as we 

have been able to tell it, for we believe that only in 

this way can the real spirit and atmosphere of our 

school be shown. For our theme — if theme there is 

— we have chosen this year at Duke. 

Our sincere aim has been to make this a student's book — one that each of you can feel is truly 

representative and cosmopolitan. As the time of its appearance draws near, we of the staff are 

filled with trepidation. While all through the year we have wanted to surpass our predecessors. 

Now, if in your opinion we have been able to maintain the already high standard set by previous 

Chanticleers, then we are happy. It is our sincere hope that you will get the enjoyment from 

it that we have worked for, and that we have gotten from our work.

Since the theme of this year's Chanticleer has to do with 
the ordinary on-goings of the University I am devoting my space to a brief story of the progress 
of these nine years on this campus. 

In these nine years Trinity College has been much strengthened, the coordinate college for 
women has been established and has already taken its place among the good colleges for women 
in the United States, a small but excellent college of engineering has been organized. We have 
one of the first-rate medical schools of America, a law school with a faculty that is exceptionally 
able, one of the three graduate schools of forestry in the country, a divinity school that has made 
the University an outstanding center in this field of higher education. These three colleges and 
four professional schools have all been approved by the several rating agencies. In 1938, the year 
following the complete set-up of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, this School and the 
University received the high recognition of admission to membership in the Association of Amer- 
ican Universities, organized forty years ago, now having thirty other members in the United States 
jncluding the oldest and most distinguished universities of the country, and two in Canada. 




President W. P. Few 



WILLIAM PRESTON FEW 

William Preston Few, President of Trinity Col- 
lege and Duke University since 19 10, has carved 
a place in the heart of every student who has had 
the privilege of knowing and associating with him. 
His simple unaffectedness, his strength of char- 
acter, and his indisputable ability might serve as 
a model to every college student. His momentous 
efforts in founding and expanding Duke Univer- 
sity, and his unselfish, sympathetic consideration 
of his subordinates, will never be forgotten. 

He received his A.B. degree from Wofford Col- 
lege in 1889, his A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard 
in 1893 and 1896 respectively. He holds LL.D. 
degrees from Wofford, Southwestern, Allegheny 
College, Syracuse University, Ohio Wesleyan, 
University of North Carolina, and Davidson Col- 
lege. He holds a Litt.D. from Birmingham 
Southern College, and an E.D. from Southern 
College. In 1933 he served as President of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools. Dr. Few is a member of Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Phi Beta Kappa, and Chi Phi fraternities. 
He is also a trustee of the Southern Education 
Foundation. 



All this has taken place within the brief pe- 
riod of nine years, for except in the case of 
Trinity College all the other divisions of the 
University have been organized, or in two cases 
made really effective, since the occupation of 
this campus in 1930. This is a record in which 
all of us find a good deal of satisfaction. Much 
has been done in this short time. We must not 
forget that there is just as much still to be done. 
This will be true not only in the next decade 
but in every decade. The University covets 
the full cooperation of all its students, its alum- 
ni and its constituency. 

W. P. Few.

The Business Division has been a vital factor 
in the history of Trinity College and Duke 
University. With the munificent benefac- 
tion of Mr. J. B. Duke and the consequent 
founding of the University, its responsibilities 
have increased greatly. Although its pri- 
mary function is the handling of monetary 
affairs of the University, its duties are mul- 
tiple. The provision of rooming and board- 
ing facilities, the execution of loan and schol- 
arship funds, and the superintendence of 
buildings and grounds of both campuses are 
among the numerous duties of this depart- 
ment of the University Administration.

the Business Division and Treasurer of the 
University. He came to Trinity College in

ignation from the United States Navy after his graduation from 
the Naval Academy. He also holds the positions of Secretary of 
the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees and Trustee 
of the Duke Endowment. 

Frank C. Brown, who came to Trinity College in 1909 as a pro- 
fessor of English, holds the position of Comptroller. To this de- 
partment fell the duties of directing the building program for the East Campus, now occupied by 
the Woman's College, and for the newer West Campus, occupied by Trinity College and the vari- 
ous graduate units of the University. In addition to his position as Comptroller, Dr. Brown also 
heads the department of English. He has held the position of Comptroller since 1918. 

Charles E. Jordan is Associate Secretary of the University. He is also Secretary of the Council 
on Admissions and Secretary of the Committee on Scholarships. Besides these positions he is in 
control of all aid to students. 

Charles E. Markham, Assistant Treasurer, is Bursar of the University and has large responsibil- 
ities in the organization of the Treasurer's office and the direction of its affairs.

The growth of Trinity College into Duke Uni- 
versity was accompanied by an expansion of 
the administrative department to such an ex- 
tent that it was found necessary to separate the 
administration into two groups — the Business 
and the Education divisions. 

William H. Wannamaker, Vice President of 
the University in the Educational Division and 
Dean of the University, has been associated 
with Duke University for forty-one years ; first

as Professor of German and later as Dean and 
Vice President. Dr. Wannamaker received his 
A.B. degree from Wofford College in 1895 and 
his M.A. degree from Trinity College in 1901. 
Wofford conferred the degree of Litt.D. upon 
him in 191 7. 

Dean of Undergraduate Instruction, Walter 
R. Greene, has been affiliated with Duke Uni- 
versity since 1928. Previously he was prom- 
inently connected with Southern preparatory 
schools and colleges. Dr. Greene, a graduate 
of Wofford College, received his M.A. and 
Ph.D. degrees from Harvard in 1921 and 1923 
respectively. As Dean of Undergraduate In- 
struction Dr. Greene handles the problems of 
undergraduate teaching, curriculum planning, 
and administration of the college instructional 
program. 

Herbert J. Herring, a graduate of Trinity 
College in 1922, returned to Duke University

in 1924 to assume his duties as Assistant Dean. 
In 1929 he received his M.A. in College Ad- 
ministration from Columbia, and became Dean 
of Men six years later. Along with his admin- 
istrative duties, Dean Herring also teaches and 
is an extracurricular adviser. 

Dean of Freshmen, Alan K. Manchester, 
came to Duke in 1929 as an instructor in his- 
tory. Dr. Manchester graduated from Van- 
derbilt in 1920, received his M.A. degree from 
Columbia, and his Ph.D. from Duke Univer- 
sity. In 1934 Dr. Manchester became Dean of 
Freshmen, and it was under his capable guid- 
ance that the system of "House Masters" of 
freshmen dormitories was inaugurated.

TRINITY COLLEGE 



Dean Wannamaker 



Tolerance, perseverence, vision — these three words 
spell the rise of Trinity College from a small two- 
room academy to one of the foremost universities in 
the South and in the country. 

The forerunner of what is now Trinity College 
was founded in 1839 in Randolph County by a 
group of Quakers and Methodists. Union Insti- 
tute, as it was called, soon was torn by internal 
strife, and on the withdrawal of the Quaker sup- 
port, the Methodist Church assumed a leadership 
which it has retained since then. 

Through the years Trinity has seen a succession 
of capable leaders who contributed much to its advancement and recognition. Brantley York, the 
first president of the school and a pioneer of educational enterprise, worked for the establishment 
of a school in Randolph County in 1839 to be called Union Institute Academy and which was 
years later to be Duke University. Continuing York's fine work, James Braxton Craven, through 
industry and enterprise, guided the school further forward. Through his efforts Union Institute 
became Normal College in 1857. Realizing that Normal needed further aid, Dr. Craven peti- 
tioned the Methodist Episcopal Church. The conference agreed to his plans, and in 1859 the 
College became Trinity College, a name by which it is still recognized. 

In 1887 the pro-Southern college dared to bring a Yankee, J. F. Crowell, to Trinity as President. 
This great leader in the field of education did much to modernize Southern educational methods. 
Through his insistence and efforts, Trinity realized the need for a more favorable location of the 
college in or near some large center of population and wealth. Raleigh was considered, but through 
the generous offers of Washington Duke and Julian S. Carr, the college was moved to Durham. 

During the financial panics of the late nineteenth century, Trinity was fortunate to have as its 
President and leader Dr. John C. Kilgo. His foresight and tolerance were responsible for a decla- 
ration of academic freedom by the Trustees of the college. The climax came when John Bassett, 
a professor, incensed the still bitter Southerners by declaring Booker T. Washington to be the 
second greatest person born in the South. Dr. Kilgo defended Bassett and showed the need for 
greater freedom on the part of the faculty. 

In 1910 the brilliant and farsighted William Preston Few became President of Trinity College. 
It was through Dr. Few's never-ceasing efforts that James B. Duke was impressed with the possi- 
bilities of a great Southern university centered around Trinity College. On December 11, 1924, 
Mr. Duke signed the indenture creating the forty million dollar Duke Endowment. With the com- 
pletion of the building program in 1930, Trinity College occupied the West Campus of Duke Uni- 

• versity, and the dreams and plans of almost a century had been real- 

ized. 

Continuing in the furtherance of the ideals of the original clear- 
sighted visionaries, Trinity College today embodies a century of edu- 
cational development, ever looking forward with optimism toward a 
future that is bright with prospect.

Dean Alice Baldwin 



The second of Duke's established colleges is the 
Woman's College which was officially recognized 
as a separate college in 1930. Women were ad- 
mitted to Trinity College as early as 1896, and from 
the beginning their increase was rapid — especially 
during the war period when the enrollment reached 
300. With the completion of the West Campus in 
1930, the East Campus, located one mile from the 
new West Campus, was given over almost entirely 
to the women. Thus a situation exists which is 
most unique — the girls enjoy all the advantages of 
an exclusive school for girls, for on the East Campus 
are the women's dormitories, auditorium, sorority 
houses, gymnasium, library, union, and classroom 
buildings, at the same time there is the distinct ad- 
vantage of attending a co-educational institution with the privilege of electing courses in the vari- 
ous colleges of the greater university. Women are graduated with an A.B. or B.S. degree. 

The increase in the size of this unit of the university has been so rapid that now almost 900 girls 
go to make up approximately one-third of the entire university community. Regulations are made 
and executed by a student elected Women's Student Government working in cooperation with the 
members of the faculty. 

Miss Alice Mary Baldwin came to Trinity College in 1924, as Dean of Women, and with the 
establishment of the Woman's College in 1930 she became its first Dean. Miss Baldwin, a New 
Englander by birth and ancestry - , received her A.B. and A.M. degrees from Cornell University and 
her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. Mrs. Hazen Smith came to Trinity in 1927 and is now 
the Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Instruction. Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson Persons is the As- 
sistant Dean in charge of Freshmen women and Secretary to the Council on Admissions. The 
Dean of Residence and the Social Director of the Woman's College is Miss Mary Grace Wilson 
who has been a vital part of the college since its founding. 

During all this rapid growth and change the Woman's College has striven to make its gains along 
other lines than the material. It strives to be a place where women may acquire the benefits of a 
good academic background and where the students may work cooperatively.

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 

The college year 1939-40 marks the inaugural of Duke Univer- 
sity's College of Engineering. This makes the third undergrad- 
uate college in the university organization and is an outgrowth of 
the former Division of Engineering of Trinity College. The col- 
lege is located on its own quadrangle on the East Campus where 
the three departments, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, 
and Mechanical Engineering occupy separate buildings. South- 
gate dormitory nearby is occupied by the engineering students. 
The total enrollment is limited to 225. 

Duke University first started training men for the engineering 
profession in 1887, when formal courses in civil and mining en- 
gineering leading to the Bachelor of Science degree were offered. 
These courses were discontinued in 1893. Instruction in engi- 
neering was again resumed in 1903, and has continued uninter- 
rupted since that time. Up until 1928 engineering was offered 
as a major in the liberal arts course leading to the Bachelor of Arts 
degree, but since that time the degrees of Bachelor of Science in 
Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering have been given. 
The high standing of the College of Engineering is attested to by 
the fact that its three curricula have been fully accredited by national accrediting agencies. 

Engineering is a man's profession, 
and it appeals very strongly to active 
young men who want to help make 
the wheels of modern civilization go 
'round and who are willing to under- 
go the rigors of the 138 semester-hour 
curriculum. Engineering training 
gives a man a pretty clear apprecia- 
tion of some of the complexities upon 
which the structure of a mechanized 
civilization is built ; he is prepared 
for the exigencies of such a civiliza- 
tion, and very easily may adapt him- 
self to its changes. He is able not only 
to make a comfortable living, but also to be a useful member of his community. 

The engineering students constitute a coherent group active in the work of their various pro- 
fessional societies and in campus affairs in general. They are represented on the varsity football, 
basketball, track, boxing, swimming, wrestling, tennis, and soccer teams. They participate in all 
the intramural sports, and have won many cups. They are active in the fraternities, professional 
societies and the various councils. The esprit de corps of the student body and the instructional 
staff is second to none in the university. Each year the student body, under the leadership of 
the Delta Epsilon Sigma honorary engineering fraternity, the three professional engineering so- 
cieties, and with the help of the faculty presents an Engineers' Show that is well worth traveling 
many miles to see. It is the product of the energy, ingenuity, and hearty cooperation character- 
istic of the engineers.

GRADUATE SCHOOL 



The Master of Arts degree was first granted at Trinity College in 
1896. At this time, however, there were no planned graduate 
courses ; the attainment of a degree depended entirely upon the 
individual's pursuit of study. In 1 916 President Few felt that 
some systematic effort should be made to promote graduate stud- 
ies in Trinity College ; therefore, he appointed Professor William 
Henry Glasson chairman of the new Committee on Graduate In- 
struction. There were at that time only six graduate students in 
the college. Graduate work in Trinity College and Duke Uni- 
versity continued under the supervision of the Committee on Grad- 
uate Instruction. Finally the degree of Master of Education was 
offered. When Trinity College was merged into the greater Duke 
University, the Board of Trustees announced its intention to es- 
tablish a Graduate School of Arts and Sciences as one of the schools 
embraced within the University organization. This Graduate 
School was formally inaugurated and placed in charge of Dean 
W. H. Glasson and a Council on Graduate Instruction. In 1938 
Professor Calvin B. Hoover of the Economics Department, suc- 
ceeded Professor Glasson as dean. And as the greater Duke Uni- 
versity continues to grow, the Graduate School constitutes an integral part in its ever-widening 
activities.

SUMMER SCHOOL 



The Duke University Summer School was formally organized in 1923. The school, though small 
when begun, has made rapid advancement in size, extensiveness, and reputation. This advance- 
ment is due largely to the efforts of Dr. Holland Holton, who is the head of the Summer Schools. 

Although the majority of the 160 instructors is from the staff of 
the University, the Summer School plays host to numerous vis- 
iting instructors from leading colleges in the United States, sup- 
plying a continuous program of study, aiding the teachers' training 
program in the South, and utilizing the University throughout 
the year. The enrollment is smaller than that of the regular col- 
. " — lege year although the graduate representation is larger. The to- 

tal enrollment includes students from a greater part of the United 
States and from several foreign countries. 

The Duke Summer School meets for two sessions of six weeks 

each during the summer months. Affiliated with the Duke Sum- 

^ **-*"^^ mer School is the Junaluska Summer School at Lake Junaluska. 

"■c ^fc A 1 Together these schools offer a curriculum which is interesting, 

varied and inclusive.

SCHOOL OF MEDICINE 



The Medical School of Duke University is ranked as one of the 
finest in the country. It has been approved as Class A by the 
American Medical Association and is also a member of the Asso- 
ciation of the American Medical Colleges. The Duke University 
School of Medicine was provided for in 1925 through the gift of 
the late James B. Duke. Work was begun on the buildings in 
1927, and the school was officially dedicated on April 20, 1930. 
The first academic year was that of 1 930-1 931. This year there 
are 259 students enrolled, fifty-seven of which are to graduate in 
June. 

The administrative council of the School of Medicine is com- 
posed of: William Preston Few, President ; Robert Lee Flowers, 
Secretary and Treasurer ; and Wilburt Cornell Davison, Dean. 
Dr. Davison came to Duke in 1927 from Johns Hopkins and has 
been Dean of the School of Medicine since its organization. The 
faculty is composed of 164 competent instructors. The equip- 
ment is very modern, and these facilities are available for students 
who are studying for degrees other than that of Doctor of Med- 
icine. The library of the School of Medicine offers 37,000 volumes 

of American and foreign medical literature, as well as subscriptions to countless medical journals. 
Steady growth of the buildings and the staff of the Duke Hospital and the School of Medicine has 

been synonymous with the high rating and nation-wide recognition afforded to these institutions

SCHOOL OF NURSING 



The School of Nursing was provided for by the James B. Duke Endowment, and began function- 
ing in 1930 in conjunction with the School of Medicine and the Duke Hospital. It advanced 
rapidly for nine years under the direction of Miss Bessie Baker, who was succeeded this year by 
Miss Margaret Isabel Pinkerton. The Administration of the 
school is under the supervision of the School of Nursing Commit- 
tee which in turn is governed by the Executive Committee of the 
School of Medicine. 

The Nursing School Staff is composed of carefully chosen and 
very capable instructors. There are 114 students enrolled in the 
School of Nursing, twenty- two of whom are candidates for degrees 
in June. The school operates in close cooperation with the School 
of Medicine whose modern and complete equipment, library, and 
other facilities are available to the student nurses. 

The purpose of the school is, by giving a sound basic course in 
Nursing Education, to prepare young women to give intelligent 
nursing care to the sick in the hospitals and homes of their com- 
munity. Instruction is also given in the problems of community 
health and preventive medicine. Upon the completion of the 
courses in the school, the graduates are well prepared to enter any 
of the various fields of nursing. There are also institutions which 
offer post graduate courses in administrative teaching, or super- 
vision work in schools of nursing. Margaret Pinkerton

SCHOOL OF RELIGION 



In his deed of indenture establishing the endowment of Duke Uni- 
versity, James B. Duke put as the first objective the "training of 
preachers, teachers, lawyers, and physicians, because these are 
most in the public eye, and by precept and example, can do most 
to uplift mankind." The School of Religion was the first pro- 
fessional school to be established in the organization of the new 
university. The formal opening exercises were held on Novem- 
ber 9, 1926. 

The School of Religion is rendering a service in the field of 
rural church work which is unique among theological seminaries. 
Through the gift of James B. Duke for the maintenance of rural 
Methodist churches in North Carolina, a plan has been adopted 
whereby students in the School of Religion give service during 
the summer vacation by assisting pastors in rural sections. Five 
students were sent out in 1926 while sixty-six served during the 
summer of 1939. 

The academic session of 1939-40 concludes the fourteenth ses- 
sion of the School of Religion. During that period about 800 stu- 
dents have enrolled. The enrollment for this academic session has 

been 123. On June 14, 1938, the School of Religion was placed on the first list of accredited 
schools announced by the American Association of Theological Schools. 

Dr. Elbert Russell has served as dean of the School of Religion since 1928.

SCHOOL OF LAW 



With a large faculty in proportion to its carefully selected student body, emphasis in the Duke 
University School of Law is placed on individualization in instruction. The teaching staff con- 
sists of thirteen full-time professors and five others who are directly connected with the work of 

instruction. The division of the study body into small groups, 
particularly in the upper classes, fosters close contact between 
y» ' *^ students and faculty. The course of study provided covers the 

, k wide and varied range of subjects 

I found in other national law schools. 

The training given is designed to 
prepare lawyers for practice in ev- 
ery state, and the student body is 
regularly drawn from more than 
thirty states. The Duke Law Li- 
brary contains more than 60,000 
volumes and is the largest in the 
South. 

The School of Law publishes Law 
and Contemporary Problems, a quarter- 
ly, the Duke Bar Association Journal, 
which affords opportunity for stu- 
dent training in law review writing.

SCHOOL OF FORESTRY 



Duke has the distinction of being one of the three 
universities in the United States to have a graduate 
school of forestry. It was established in 1931 when 
the Duke Forest, comprising some 5,000 acres, was 
given over for educational work and research in 
forestry. The pre-forestry curriculum was organ- 
ized in 1932, and the graduate work in 1935, cul- 
minating in the recognized School of Forestry in 

1938. 

The Duke Forest, and excellent field laboratory, 
directly adjoins the university campus, providing 
the school with a practice, demonstration and ex- 
perimental forest that is entirely unique in this coun- 
try in regard to its proximity to the forestry school. 
Laboratory and Greenhouse facilities for the school 
are provided in the University's large Biology build- 



With increased facilities made available by larger 
space in Few Quadrangle, the forestry department has promise of great advancement in the future. 
The school is expected to fill a definite need, particularly in the South where there has previously 
been no forestry school of graduate work. 



DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC 



In recent years the extensive work done in the field of music at Duke has developed into a noted 
department of the University. J. Foster Barnes, who has been an indispensable member of the 

faculty for many years, heads the department which 
sponsors the Men's Glee Club, the Women's Glee 
Club, directed by Mrs. Barnes, the band, the sym- 
phony orchestra, the choir which is one of the largest 
student choirs in America, a concert series, and va- 
rious musical clubs. 

Under the direction of Mr. Barnes, the Men's Glee 
Club had an extensive season of activity. A con- 
cert was given in Page Auditorium immediately 
preceding their yearly trip which included concerts 
in the South and East climaxed by a brilliant per- 
formance in New York City. Later, the spring con- 
cert was presented jointly by the Men's Glee Club, 
the Women's Glee Club, the Modern Dance Group, 
and symphony orchestra. 

The Music Department was fortunate to have 
two notable additions to the music faculty. Last 
year Mr. Henry Bruinsma was added to the faculty 
and wrote the music for the May Day celebration 
last year and this year also. Miss Julia Wilkinson 
J. Foster Barnes was added this year.

DEPARTMENT OF ALUMNI 

Established ten years ago, the Department of 
Public Relations and Alumni Affairs functions 
in two divisions, the Division of Public Rela- 
tions and the Division of Alumni Affairs. Hen- 
ry R. Dwire has been director of the depart- 
ment since its establishment, Charles A. Dukes 
is assistant director, and Miss Anne Garrard is 
assistant director of alumni affairs. 

Affiliated with the work of the department 
are the University News Service, of which Al- 
bert A. Wilkinson is director, with Ted Mann 
in charge of the sports news ; the Appointments 
Office, with James R. Simpson as director ; and 
the Duke University Press, with Dr. R. O. Ri- 
vera as executive secretary and D. K. Jackson 
in charge of editorial work. 

The Division of Public Relations is concerned particularly with contacts of various kinds for the 
University away from the campus, though there are features of its activities which concern both 
faculty and student body as well. 

Included in the work of the Division of Public Relations are the handling of various publications 
of the University, including the ten catalogue bulletins and the pictorial booklets ; the Speakers' 
Bureau ; the Information Service and the entertainment of visiting groups. 

The Division of Alumni Affairs is concerned with contacts with the nearly 13,000 former students 
of the institution, representing every state in the Union, every county in North Carolina, and 
twenty-nine foreign countries. There are three cards in the files for each alumnus — alphabetical, 
class, and geographical. 

In addition to keeping complete records of the alumni, the Alumni Office sponsors, in connec- 
tion with other groups, various occasions such as Homecoming in the fall, the Alumnae Home- 
coming in the spring, the Alumnae Week-End, and annual meetings of seventy-five local associa- 
tions. The mailing office handles, in addition to alumni matter, the distribution of the various 
bulletins of the University, approximately 750,000 pieces 
of mail being handled annually. 

The Appointments Office, which is affiliated with the 
Department of Public Relations and Alumni Affairs, is 
operated for the convenience of students and alumni, and 
is directed by James R. Simpson, '24. There are two 
divisions : the commercial and the teacher placement. 

The work of the Appointments Office embraces con- 
tacts with commercial enterprises and educational insti- 
tutions for the purpose of learning of opportunities for 
gainful employment for nearly 1,900 alumni whose rec- 
ords are on hie. Emphasis is placed upon personal prob- 
lems of employment for those in the University and con- 
tacts for and assistance to former students. 

Contact is maintained throughout the year with many 
of the large industrial and commercial organizations, and 
during the Christmas and Spring vacations appointments 
are arranged for interviews by these firms of students. James R. Simpson

TO THE FACULTY 



I 



request that this institution secure for its officers, trus- 
tees, and faculty, men of such outstanding character, ability, 
and vision as will insure its attaining and maintaining a place 
of real leadership in the educational world." 

— James Buchanan Duke. 



To these members of the university community, the master 
craftsmen who mold our ideals, build our characters, and shape 
our destinies, the patient individuals who work with us unself- 
ishly and sympathetically in success or failure, we, the students 
of Duke University, are proud to dedicate this 
1940 Chanticleer.

SEPTEMBER FINDS ITS 



where we are proud to be found. Perhaps we don't know why it is we have grown to love our 
University — but we do love it. Some of us started our final year this past September, and already 
we were beginning to feel touches of regret that this four-year era was nearing its end. 

Duke students, like college students all over America, returned to school war-conscious ; and 
President Few, with this in mind, opened the academic year with a talk in Page Auditorium on 
"A Word About Democracy." We started in this unusual atmosphere, but the first few days of 



24 




the first semester quickly indicated that it was to be just 
another good college year. 

Normalcy began when the freshmen purchased their 
dinks, and continued as B. O. S. men in particular and 
upper-classmen generally practiced traditional influence 
over the frosh. It continued as we cheered for the Blue 
Devil eleven at weekly games. 

A million-dollar construction program was an impor- 
tant part of the 1939-40 history. Some 500 graduate 
students took up new quarters in immense Few Quad- 
rangle, our fourth West campus living section, which 
was appropriately named after the fourth president of 
Trinity. In January the new indoor stadium was chris- 
tened by a basketball game with Princeton. And in June 
a five-story hospital wing has scheduled completion. 

Also significant was the creation of a third college. 
Duke formerly had been Trinity College and the Wom- 
an's College. This year it was divided further with the 
creation of the Engineering College, of which Dr. W. H. 
Hall was appointed dean. Twelve per cent of all the 
University students are enrolled in the new unit.

BACK AT BUM 



A much-discussed Recreation Center took several steps 
toward actual existence after a student-faculty commit- 
tee met and discussed plans. They announced that the 
Center would be possible if the students could raise $20, 
000. The Co-eds went to work with an "I want a recre- 
ation center" drive, and the men followed their inspira- 
tion. Within a week $52,500 were contributed. 



25 




That was the year. Add five concerts starring the Don Cossack Singers, Yehudi Menuhin, Law- 
rence Tibbett, Artur Rubinstein, and the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra ; then remember 
the usual Rush Week periods for fraternities and sororities, and the usual spring elections, then 
you will remember the year. We went to football games, we danced and dated, we weathered 
numerous bull sessions, and we studied. 

The ordeal of final exams was not too much, and the Spring found us back on the merry-go- 
round with slight touches of the oft-mentioned Spring fever. We anticipated and were not dis- 
appointed in the many Spring sports. Baseball, lacrosse, track, and tennis kept our school spirit 
going strong for D. U. 
Through the lovely gar- 
dens and on the downy 
lawns we promenaded 
arm in arm, exhuberant 
in spirit and with love for 
the world in our hearts. 
We live in the present, 
this year forming the 
back-drop for what will 
always be one of the most 
memorable periods of our 
young lives. 

As the setting sun of an- 
other school year starts to 
cast its beautifully sad ra- 
diance over our campus, 
some of us look forward 
to life beyond this small

home for four years, oth- 
ers anticipate further 

preparation for the event that is the consummation of all our school dreams — graduation. Pre- 
liminary to all this is the gala May Day celebration, and then — final exams of the year. Our 
hearts are filled with a mixture of sorrow and happiness, but no matter what the future portends, 
we shall always have with us the knowledge of the most pleasant associations and experiences 
that spell "another year at Duke." 

Through the years Duke University has advanced 
steadily. This advancement did not take place in "piece 
meal" or haphazard fashion. Each new part of the Uni- 
versity was finished capably and completely, without a 
halt in the advancement. Unlike some of the visitors, 
the people who know the college and its leaders do not 
expect contributions which will astound the world from 
the relatively new Duke University. They are pleased 
and amazed, however, at the amount of progress made 
in such a short time. The University boasts world au- 
thorities on many subjects and is continuing to put only 
the best instructors on its faculty. Duke students are 
proud of their "hideous green statues." Those statues 
are of the men who made our school possible. The stu- 
dents are proud of their faculty, their campus, and their 
school.

Wilson, Hanlon, Palmer 



This year's Student Government Council came 
into office as the first one under the new elec- 
tion system. The purpose of this new system 
is to get men of the highest caliber, and at the 
same time, to prevent one combine or group 
from sweeping all of the offices. With many 
campaign promises having been made, it was 
then up to the new council to investigate them 
and see if they were worthy of being carried out. 
When this council came into office they im- 
mediately took up where the last one left off. 
Each organization on the campus was investi- 
gated to see if they were serving the purposes 
for which they were set up. 
This year the council interested itself in many of the campus problems. A committee was ap- 
pointed to see what suggestions could be made to improve the Union food. These suggestions were 
given to Mr. Thompson, and many of them have been put into practice. Another project that 
was seriously considered by the council was the air-conditioning of the Union ballroom. This idea 
was dropped because there was no place to put the mechanized unit and because the cost of the 
installation and operation would be too much for the services received. 

MEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The main objective the Student Government has been working for during this year is the build- 
ing of a recreational center for the students. In order to bring this idea to a reality, the association 
voted to donate $400 to the Recreational Center fund. 

This year there has been a striving toward faculty-student cooperation and relations. The coun- 
cil forms a go-between for the faculty and students. The Council also forms a connection between 
all the campus organizations as well, being indispensable in this respect. This year has seen in- 
telligent treatment of the many problems confronted by the council. Born with the express pur- 
pose of guiding the students rather than policing them, the council has become this year the co- 
operative body that it was intended to be.

The year 1939-40 marks 
the twentieth year of self- 
government on the East 
Campus. The desire for 
a cooperative and self- 
governed community first 
reached its fruition in 
1 91 9. From this nucleus 
of the democratic ideal 
grew a governing system 
following the principles of 
individual responsibility, 
unity, and cooperation. 
In 1924 this system was 
formally established as the 
Woman's Student Gov- 
ernment Association. 
The Student Council is composed of two parts, the Executive Council and the Judicial Board. 
The duties of both these departments are to keep abreast of the sentiment of the campus, to pro- 
vide any necessary or beneficial changes, and to see that the students and their rights are protected.

WOMEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

In order that any changes desired by campus opinion might be voiced, last year's Council insti- 
tuted Inventory Week. This year Inventory Week has been expanded to include organizations 
other than the Council, the suggestions and criticisms being turned over to the proper authorities. 
During this week the minutes and books of all the organizations within the Council were opened for 
student inspection, and an open council meeting was held in order that those interested might at- 
tend. Any questions concerning the student body and Administration were clearly answered and 
explained, in order that every Association member could understand fully the Council and its work. 

Many rules and regulations were worked over and changed, and more amusement places were 
placed on the approved list for women students. 

The fact that the basic power of the Council lies in the student body has been the enervating 
force behind everything that has been done. It is through this power that the Council has made 
a sincere attempt to point to the path of a more progressive democracy.

Chairman 



The Social Standards Committee has two purposes ; one deals 
with social activities, and the other with campus standards. 
This Committee, well representative of campus groups, has 
many specific activities which enable the students to have con- 
genial and gracious social relationships. 

The Committee cultivates an atmosphere of friendliness between the East and West Campus by 
a series of tea dances for the new students held in the Ark at the beginning of the year. Following 
this are the freshmen discussion groups to acquaint the freshmen with the committee and its work. 

For several years the Social Standards Committee has sponsored formal dinners in the Union. 
The first dinner this year was a student-faculty dinner, followed by the Edna St. V. Millay lecture. 
The Christmas dinner, a festive occasion, was held in honor of the men from West and was followed 
by a girl-break dance in the Ark. One general formal dinner was held and a Senior Banquet closed 
the year. 

The two Co-ed Balls, which enabled the women to repay their social obligations, were the out- 
standing events of their respective seasons. The Committee worked hard to make them the most 
beautiful and enjoyable of all campus dances. 

The Social Standards Committee cooperates with the work of the Student Council in creating 
a greater sense of responsibility among the women students for upholding the social standards of 
the Woman's College, and for instilling in them a feeling of pride in all that they do as members 
of the University.

The largest freshman class in history poured into Duke's two campuses in 
September, and it was the usual story at first. They went through orienta- 
tion with its placement tests, they were courteously escorted day and night 
by Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. upperclassmen, they listened to numerous 
speeches, and in odd hours they wandered around the campus, looking 
amazed. 

Historically, the frosh had plenty to put in their college memoirs books. 
Perhaps the highlight of the autumn, from the freshman point of view, was 
the arson that was committed on Thursday night before the Carolina game. 
Our 592 new men, whose task it was to protect the immense pile of material 
intended for the pre-game-eve bonfire, allowed two or three members of 
the enemy camp to light the wood and escape. 




592 wait to register . . . and they make him pay for it! . . . glamour girls? 



But there are other, more pleasant, memories of this first year. It was a 
class of record-breaking proportions in more ways than one. Not only has it 
been the largest first-year group in Duke history ; it has also gained dis- 
tinction for setting an all-time high for first-week Y. M. C. A. membership 
when 393 men joined the "Y" during the first drive, it was the first class 
to enjoy the aid of a full-size Freshman Advisory Council, it saw 179 men 
pledge to our eighteen fraternities for another record, its Greek pledges 
held the first pan-hellenic pledge dance in history, and it also boasts of the 
possession of the largest numerals ever to grace a freshman dink. (Those 
'"43's" on the blue caps were more than twice as large as any previous class 
numerals.) 

On the Women's Campus, this year's freshman class was the first to go 
through the new system of deferred rushing. In spite of the arguments 
pro and con, the regrettable disappointments and heartaches that all classes 
must expect, the system met with sufficient success to warrant giving it an- 
other trial. Out of the February chaos emerged 159 pledges who, in time, 
were properly initiated and have now become active members of the cel- 
brated Greeks.

autumn when he will return to haze as he

during the year, when he was hopefully 
looking forward to the time when he would 
become an upperclassman, the current up- 
perclassmen were just as hopefully, but 
with futility, wishing that he were once 
again a freshman enjoying the things that 
go with that class status.

THE FMMMEN 
AT DUKE 



For the prosiac class history, the kind 
of history that is made in class meetings, 
the women were a bit more active than 
the men. They emphasized two sides of 
the ideal class. One was the fostering of 
class spirit, and the other was the planning 
of class programs designed to interest as 
well as entertain. Class-president Kath- 
leen Watkins reported that class-spirit em- 
phasis was made through the adoption of 
corduroy pork pie hats as class emblems, 
the planning for a revision of "Goon Day," 
the creation of a song committee to select 
a class song during the first year rather than the 
final year according to tradition, and the planning 
of a class picnic. Class programs were held once 
each month, and included speakers as well as stu- 
dent entertainment during each program. 

Irvin Wright, the men's president, reported that 
there were no new activities of note this year, that 
the Class of '43 was satisfied to follow its predeces- 
sors. There is one high of which the class is justly 
proud ; four students made a straight "A" average 
in the autumn semester. There was also the class 
dance, but no other special events. 

Suffice it to say that the 1939-40 freshman — the 
ever-humble member of the first-year class — has

SOPHOMORE 
ACTIVITIES 




Members of our sophomore class returned to school 
and quickly assumed their expected places as old 
hands at the business of attending college, and as self- 
appointed guardians of the freshmen. The typical 
soph stepped off the train at Durham's station, set his 
suitcases on the platform, and sighed, "Gosh, it's good 
to be back" — with emphasis on the "back." 

But the sophomores as classes have been business- 
like this year. The men, headed by president Howard 
Moffett, declared that they had no definite projects 
in mind for the year. But they did schedule a class 
dance in December, and they obtained many Univer- 
sity authorities for their weekly class meeting. 

The women, headed by Marion Lassen, were more 
decided in their class activities. They sponsored two 
projects for the purpose of obtaining money, which

will be saved until their senior year, when 
they will apply it to a class gift for the Wom- 
an's College. The first of these projects was 
the selling of sandwiches in the East Campus 
dormitories several times a week. The sec- 
ond project was the sponsoring of a movie 
party at a downtown theatre, with a per- 
centage of the proceeds going to the class 
treasury. 

Like the men, the women also held a class 
dance. This was scheduled for April in the 
East Campus gymnasium. The Co-eds made 
two contributions during the year, one of 
fifteen dollars for the May Day pageant, the 
other of ten dollars to Sandals, sophomore 
honorary society. 

Tops in publicity for the yearlings on the 
two campuses was the Beta Omega Sigma

group for the men and the Sandals group for the women. These two 
organizations were constantly the pride of the sophs and the bane of the 
frosh. They wore their insignia during Freshman Week, when they were 
sweet and gentle to every new student who should ask for sweetness and 
gentleness. When school officially opened, they took on a character that 
made most frosh begin to believe it must have been a sophomore who 
named our teams the Blue Devils. The B. O. S. conducted all manner 
of hazing, chiefly in rat courts. They saw to it that the new men wore

their large dinks, and they issued yellow 
dinks to belligerent frosh. They also as- 
sumed supervision over the building of 
bonfires before the Syracuse and Carolina 
football games. 

The Sandals, likewise, took the lead 
when dreaded "Goon Day" came around 
for the new Co-eds. It was the Sandals 
group that instigated many of the mock 
marriage proposals that occurred on that 
day of daze.

Our junior class during the school year was chiefly interested in two things. One 
was the preparation for becoming seniors, and the other was the series of spring elec- 
tions that decided who will be the leaders in 1940-41. 

Like the other three classes, the junior class proposed several activities that never 
did materialize. Despite disappointments, however, several innovations were re- 
corded. 

Led by Thea Conger and an executive council that met twice each week, the Co- 
ed junior class considered many proposals, and in several instances the class intro- 
duced new activities that may, or may not, become traditions. First of the proposed 
activities was a student book exchange, which had been considered by other classes 
in previous years. Plans for this exchange have been presented to the University. 
Then the executive council began to consider possibilities for a leap year hayride

party, and it was then that the class attempts became humorous. The hayride was 
at one time practically a certainty ; and then one complication appeared. It was 
impossible to obtain the number of chaperons that would be required by University 
regulations, and this activity was a failure. 

In February the Co-eds again began to function, and made arrangements for spe- 
cial busses to transport Duke students to Chapel Hill for the annual basketball game 
with Carolina. The arrangements were good, but the response was not so good, and 
no one made the trip. 

Came April, and also came a new proposal. The executive committee became 
determined to sponsor something successful, and decided to schedule three one-act 
plays which would star faculty members as actors. This was a success. The faculty 
actors cooperated, a good-sized crowd was on hand, and the presentation of the three 
plays — a farce, a mystery, and a melodrama — was well received. 

John Wright, president of the Trinity College junior class, reported that the chief 
activities of the class on West campus was "to attain the treasury quota and to give

cates. The fact that in several instances 
the class failed to carry out planned activ- 
ities does indicate one good trait, and that 
is the willingness of the class to try. Where 
other classes did not fail simply because 
they made no efforts, the juniors were not 
afraid to meet defeat ; and in the end, they 
can boast of a few noteworthy accomplish- 
ments. 

And now the junior class history is com- 
pleted. Next year it will be the senior 
class, and then it will be their duty to play 
well the part that they have been antici- 
pating all during this year.

as much as possible to the trustees to be 
used probably for the newly-proposed Rec- 
reation center. This would be probably 
an amount of $200, to follow in the foot- 
steps of the two classes preceding us." 

One innovation made by the class was 
the change in the Junior prom. This was 
planned as an open dance, the object be- 
ing to present the first big class prom on 
Duke campus. A king and a queen were 
to be crowned. 

The Trinity juniors were also proud of 
their sponsorship of a lecture during the first se- 
mester, this lecture being delivered by Dr. Von 
Hagen, noted traveller and lecturer, who talked 
in Page auditorium. 

Scholastically, the class was good. It boasted 
in particular of the largest pre-medical group ever 
to survive the first three years of that curriculum. 

Putting aside all debunking, we can report that 
the junior class this year was much more enthus- 
iastic, much more capable, and in all ways a 
much better class than the recorded history indi-

JUNIOR CLASS 

OF 1940 



87 



THE BEGINNING 



September finds the juniors of "east" and "west" back 
on the campus for a last swing at social activities before 
settling down next year in order to make up the neces- 
sary "the one hundred and twenty-two" necessary for 
graduation. 



i %3 





And each Saturday night 



First there came politics. The political set-ups were 
the most interesting that the class of '41 has witnessed in 
its three years. The third year students were out to con- 
fiscate honors for their senior year, and to find out all 
about politics and elections. The usual bigwigs and 
many unknowns of the ranks ran side by side in the race 
for offices and honors — "if at first you don't succeed, 
try, try — ." The realization that work this year meant 
offices for their senior year, caused a sudden renewal of 
old sophomore activities that had almost been forgotten. 
Aspiring politicians grew more cordial and witty as elec- 
tion time drew near, and juniors began to assist their 
senior political bosses in the secret combine meetings. 

As individuals, the class members exerted themselves 
in behalf of their advancement both politically and other- 
wise. Of course even in the best of junior classes, there 
are always students who manage to check out of the 
library, and carry around campus, enough of those great 
big heavy books to convince their teachers that they de- 
serve the necessary "A" to make them Phi Beta Kappas. 




Typical Activities Man 



88 



OF THE END 



While the juniors on "west" were trying to formulate plans for the Junior-Senior Ball, the Co-eds 
sponsored three one-act plays with all-faculty casts. 

Dating was not forgotten. The first two years were already past and there were two more to 
go. "So make merry while ye may." Dating was begun in earnest — studies forgotten until the 
nights before exams. The juniors got back into the swing of things. Dances became more and 
more important, and dates were made more and more often. 

Elections and Co-ed Balls were held and finished, leaving behind either delight or dejection. 
Spring brought a new interest in dating and an increase in pin-ups. Elections brought in new 
class officers and the surge for honors and activity keys was referred until the senior year. 

The junior year has been filled with endeavors in every field, but, why say more, for anyone in 
the class will be more than willing to supply the details with suitable exaggerations.

The most important thing about the Senior Class can- 
not be reported until early in June, when several 
hundred members of the Class of 1940 will receive 
diplomas. We cannot say how many will graduate, 
we cannot say who will lead the Class, we cannot say 
who will be elected to the traditional Class Day offices. 
About all that can be said is that some four-hundred 
senior men on West Campus and some two-hundred 
women on East Campus have been considered seniors 
this past year. 

Class activity was a bit more in evidence for the 
seniors than for the other classes, but the 1940 grad- 
uating class was not as active as have been the classes 
of recent years. It seemed too content to carry out the 
traditions of senior classdom, and did this excellently; 
but there were not many new things of importance 
instituted. 




Her highest ambition . 
The admiring circle 



Senior Tree Planting 



Perhaps the most important original con- 
tribution of the Men's Senior Class was the 
change in method of selecting a speaker for 
the Wiley Gray Medal. For the first time, 
such selection was primarily in the hands of 
the entire Class, which in March nominated 
six candidates for the honor, Guy Berner. 
Duncan Gray, Tom Hanlon, Jack Palmer, 
Addison Penfield, and Joe Tally. These six 
delivered orations before a Committee, which 
selected the winner of the award on the basis 
of these orations. 

The most important new institution in- 
troduced by the women of the Class of 1940 
was the formation of Ivy two years ago. In 
the Spring of 1937, when the class was a 
freshman group, this new honorary society 



90 



BUM'S SENIORS 

of Ivy was formed. Twelve Co-eds were charter members, and the en- 
trance requirement was a 2.25 quality point average. Since its induc- 
tion, Ivy has taken its place as the first important scholastic honor to be 
attained by Co-eds. 

The introduction of a new system of unlimited cutting, which was an- 
nounced in February, was the result of a general demand by the class 
for such privilege. Remembering the unlimited cutting of last year for 
all "C" average seniors, the present class asked for similar privileges. 





Arthur Peabody, Vice President; Robert Stivers, Treasurer: Tim Brinn, 
Secretary: Add Penfield, President 



Finally, a compromise agreement was 
reached, with all seniors with a three 
"B's" and two "C's" average or better. 

Two proposed activities were heralded 
for a while, but never materialized. The 
first was a Co-ed Senior Thanksgiving Day 
Dance. Tickets were actually sold for this, 
but it was later announced that the con- 
flict of five other dances on the same week- 
end made it inexpedient to have the dance 
— and a possible new tradition never 
started. 

The other plan that dropped was a 
Commencement dance. This would have 
called for a series of dances during Com- 
mencement week-end, with a "Name" 
band to play for the affair. But the Class 
was not able to gain official permission for 
the function.

acy and guidance. Some of us learned the 
duties of the head nurse ; others cared for 
children, and still others spent weary hours 
convincing the exhausted father that the 
baby looked just like him. 

But not all is work. Numerous social 
activities are sponsored throughout the 
year : a glee club, a dramatic club, parties, 
and dances. Perhaps the most important 
social event of the year has always been 
the Junior-Senior Ball, which is given an- 
nually in honor of the graduating class. 

After graduation the Senior Class will 
leave, determined to fulfill its ambition — 
the betterment of mankind through con- 
scientious service. 



JSURSES CLASS OF 1940 



Excited? Of course we were ! But the feel- 
ing was partially overshadowed by the fear 
— fear of entering a world in which we 
were complete strangers. The hospital 
loomed before us, a seemingly impassable 
barrier which we somehow had to pass. 

We soon learned the numerous hospital 
phraseologies . . . "Pasteur class on the 
third floor" refers to the nurses' home and 
not to the hospital. As the year passed, 
the route to the lab became a beaten path 
— a path which led to gruesome cadavers and 
dissections. After morning classes and afternoon 
duties we had little time for our numerous stud- 
ies ; so after lights we resorted to closets and flash- 
lights — that is, until the dean walked in. 

Finally the day of reckoning arrived! We shall 
never forget that tense morning of waiting for 
final grades. The report "all returning" sent us 
home with happy hearts to our first Christmas 
Vacation. 

We started the new year proudly wearing our 
caps and uniforms. Finally, summer arrived and 
classes stopped. But the relief which we felt, hav- 
ing no classes was short-lived ; soon we were to 
have eight-hour days at 102 F., and the uni- 
forms of which we were so proud became torture 
suits. 

The senior year brought little sisters, parties, 
dances, and an important feeling — one of suprem-

THOSE 
h Sadness and Gladness 



Until about April i the Seniors 
rocked blissfully along satisfied 
with themselves and the world 
at large. But April brought 
the great awakening. Those 
fortunate individuals who 
found themselves with enough 
quality points t o guarantee 
graduation found that instead 
of having the future planned 
for them they must plan for 
the future, and those who had 
preferred to get the most of 
their college education outside 
of the classroom someho w 
wished they had imitated to a 
greater degree the activity of 
their " bookworm " brothers. 
However, they all entered the 
"six - weeks' sprint" together, 
some desiring to finish with 
honors, others satisfied with 
merely finishing. 

It was somewhat disillusion- 
ing to have the newly-elected 
officers assume their duties and 




138 



LAST BAYS 

we prepare 

to depart 




definitely push the Seniors into the "has been" class. A year of satisfied senior superiority had 
somehow given them a sense of security that was rudely shaken by the coming in of the new lead- 
ers. There was a frantic rush to the appointments office in hope of attaining a real position and 
later a job of any sort for those unfortunate few who were not to work for father. 

Social activity dominated the scene, and various fraternity and sorority dances combined with 
the proms and Pan-Hels to make the last week sleepless but long remembered. 

Graduation week brought an endless round of activity. Parents and friends flooded the campus 
and so much time was devoted to acting as campus guides for them that much of graduation was 
taken as routine. 

The three-day commencement program began on Saturday, June i, and extended through 
Monday, June 3, when the long awaited diplomas were awarded in the stadium. Special musical 
programs and social events shared the spotlight with various commencement addresses. The prin- 
cipal speaker was Dr. William Allen Xeilson, President of Smith College and distinguished author- 
ity on the English classics. Dr. Xeilson assisted in the editing of the Harvard Classics, and in 1934 
was editor-in-chief of Webster's New International Dictionary. Too, Dr. Xeilson's brilliant and schol- 
arly address was called an inspiring sermon by Dr. Thomas Guthrie Speers, and President Few's 




139 



address to the graduating Seniors served only to reinforce the high opinion and sincere respect we 
had held for him since we were freshmen. 

Then after a four-hour wait in a line that seemed to stretch around the entire stadium, each 
senior found himself with the long-awaited diploma in hand and a sort of lost and empty feeling 
mingled with his sense of superiority and genuine pride of achievement. 

Another feature of the week was the return of twelve alumni classes for their formal reunions. 
Featuring the meeting of old friends and acquaintances, the alumni walked the campus as of old 
and whistled "Dear Old Duke" with the free air of an undergraduate. Casting aside their worries 
from the world outside, these noble graduates participated in all of the events scheduled for their 
entertainment and pleasure. Joining hands with the new members of their hallowed class, the 
alumni welcomed the graduating class of 1940, and to them offered the encouragement and as- 
sistance so necessary for good fellowship and mutual understanding among the graduates of Duke 
University — the new and the old. 




tf'J x 



I were a freshman again 



Mingled emotions — who can say whether gladness or sadness — 
greet us at the close of our college career. Beautiful scenes appear 
to our eyes, things never seen before in quite the same light, 
dimmed ever so slightly — could it be blurring? Casting a long, 
long glance over a shoulder, the experiences of preceding years 
float by, but we find it impossible to grasp them except in our 
emotions. The apprehension and final joys of our Freshman year ; the mixture of haughty sur- 
veillance and pleasures as Sophomores ; the regulation and gradual maturing of our Junior year ; 
the final consummation of all our dreams, hopes, and desires in our Senior year — all these and 
many, many more memories flood our thoughts. Appallingly comes the realization that we have 
reached at last the end of our formal training and education, forgotten are the cares and worries 
each step ahead involved, but never the happiness that went with them, hand in hand. Now, 
with full import and significance we can say and mean that which never before was completely 
sincere, "I wish I were a Freshman again."

PHI ETA SIGMA 




Alex MacMahon 
President 




Phi Eta Sigma, national freshman scholastic honorary fra- 
ternity, was founded in 1923 on the campus of the University 
of Illinois and has since grown to include forty-eight chap- 
ters. The present Duke chapter was established in 1931 and 
secured its charter in 1932 through the efforts of the late 
Dean M. Arnold. The present adviser is Dean Alan K. Manchester. 

A freshman, to be eligible for initiation, must secure an average of 2.25 quality points in all of 
his subjects, either during the first semester or over his entire year. 

Phi Eta Sigma has increased its activities to a great extent during the past year. A new Fresh- 
man Scholarship Advisory Council was formed, and any freshman desiring help in any of his sub- 
jects contacted the council ; a member of Phi Eta Sigma was then sent to help him. Everyone co- 
operated in this project, and over 125 boys were aided. This has become an 
annual activity and will no doubt be of great help during future years to all 
A I a^~*\A freshmen experiencing difficulties in their studies. 

w^m/f J^-J* 1 In December the annual open house was held in conjunction with Ivy for 

WttrW^ V\U/ all students who had made a "B" average for the first half semester. A plaque, 

■ B| ^ T . donated by the class of '40, was presented each quarter to the freshman house 

j^B \)1£J having the highest scholastic average. The social fraternities donated a cup 

1 (\y which was presented to the fraternity whose pledge class made the highest aver- 

y*Cs age during the spring semester. 



146 




JVY 






Ivy was founded in 1937 as an encouragement to high standards 
of scholarship. The name, "Ivy," was selected because of the 
use of ivy by the ancient Romans to symbolize the attainment of 
knowledge. The appropriate motto, Scientia vogue creocat, the col- 
ors, gold and ivy-green, and the identification badge, a small gold 
pin in the shape of an ivy leaf, were chosen by the founders. 
Mrs. Walter S. Persons, Dean of Freshmen Women, is the adviser and an honorary member. 

Its qualifications for membership are an irreproachable citizenship record and a scholastic aver- 
age of 2.25 quality points per semester hour of work carried for the first semester or for the entire 
freshman year. Although primarily an honorary society, Ivy has been given the privilege of mar- 
shalling at all lectures given in the Woman's Auditorium. Under the able supervision of Miss 
Mary Kestler, the group served in this capacity for the first time at this year's formal opening of 
the Woman's College in September, 1939. Since that time Ivy has marshalled at the lectures 
presented by the Student Forum and at a series of concerts given by Mr. Harold Morris. Other 
activities of the organization include an open house and an outdoor picnic for all freshmen women 
making "B" averages. 

Ivy hopes that its various activities will serve more than ever as a stimulus to successful endeavor 
in scholarship and as a goal toward which all freshmen 
women will strive to attain.

Nevin Stetler 
President 




For half a century the Order of go i g has set forth as its pri- 
mary purpose the recognition of outstanding scholarship, 
leadership, character, and service. With the advent of na- 
tional honor organizations on the Duke campus, goig re- 
stricted its activity to the recognition of superior scholarship. 

The present requirements for membership to the oldest honorary organization on the campus is 
2.25 average for four consecutive semesters. 

In recent years goig has continued its ancient practice of furthering worthwhile projects on the 
campus. By operating as a subtle influential force in campus activities, by the continuous endeavor 
of its membership which embraces many important campus personalities, goig has justified its 
existence as an honorary and service fraternity. Most recent of goig's campus activities is the 
active participation in the movement for the betterment of student-faculty relations. The need 
of such a movement is recognized by the entire campus, and goig has taken a 
^fe /s^~-K./\ great step forward by sponsoring student-faculty luncheons each week. These 

Wfit/y >^v i luncheons, which have proved very entertaining and satisfactory to all, are in- 
j^m&^T \x\0 formal gatherings of students and faculty members with an absolutely unplanned 
■ B jj ^T program which tries — and successfully to draw out the personalities of both 

W ■ n/<y factions of the campus population and, therefore, bring about for them a better

MTA OMEGA SIGMA 



Founded at Trinity in 191 7, Beta Omega Sigma is a local honorary 
Sophomore organization made up of the leaders of the preceding 
Freshman class. These men are trusted with the duty of instructing 
freshmen in the regulations and traditions of our school. 

In accordance with the custom, B. O. S. members donated their 
vices to the aid of the incoming freshmen during Orientation Week. 
Once the week was over, however, this aid was displaced by discipline. 
Dinks, song singing, "buttoning," to upper classmen became the fixed 
rule for all freshmen. For those who did not sense the subordination, weekly "rat" courts were 
held in the early hours of the morning. Those who appeared learned the position of the freshman 
the hard way. 

With the end of the football season the fraternity life of the campus settled down. Plans for the 
rest of the year, revision of the election system, checking on freshman's points were the main activ- 
ities. Prexy Senhauser pounding the table to bits, Cassels delivering in eloquent oratory on noth- 
ing, Phi Bete Berringer being downed by sheer vocal power, all combined to make each meeting 
a mad house of activity. Not lacking in social life, the fraternity in cooperation with Sandals gave 
a dance celebrating the last of exams. Freshmen for the first 
time enjoyed themselves side by side with the B. O. S. members. 
With the appearance of the traditional garb of straw hats, 
pink slips, and red socks for initiation, the year has come to 
end all too soon. Another year another group, and a new class 
of freshmen, but B. O. S. will continue on unchanged like its 
traditions.

SANDALS 




"I believe in service as a thing not apart from beauty in the 

worthy performance of which may be experienced the exalta- Beth Shaw 

tion of selfless living. . . ." President 

"I believe in the fusion of the spiritual and the common 
so that loveliness grows up through the ordinary and the 

practical guides of our dreams to accomplishment, just as the wings of our ideals give loft to the 
Sandals of our daily task." 

With this creed adopted by those twenty girls who comprise a group known as "Sandals," we 
have an insight into the spirit of this organization. The group itself is chosen from the rising soph- 
omore class as most representative of girls displaying leadership and good citizenship qualities dur- 
ing the past year. 

With Beth Shaw as their leader and with the splendid assistance of their adviser, Miss Huckabee, 
the Sandals are carrying through the work started by previous Sandals. This 
year they met and welcomed the freshmen as they arrived, cooperated with the 
freshmen advisers in planning the work and play schedules of the freshmen, and 
with the B. O. S. is helping the freshmen of both campuses become acquainted. 
Sandals' activities for the year have been varied. The annual B. O. S. -San- 
dals dance was held in early winter. A tea was given for the old and new mem- 
bers as an effort to hold a united feeling among all Sandals. This year's San- 
dals were the first to hear the new creed and hymn in a candle-light service, 
and as the year ends, Sandals continues to be the goal of all freshmen — the 
honorary sophomore society.

CHI DELTA PHI 






Chi Delta Phi, national honorary literary society, forms a liter- 
ary center on Woman's College campus wherein Duke women 
may focus their mutual creative desire and interest in literature. 
This year, stress has been placed upon informal afternoon gath- 
erings which have featured reading and criticism of contemporary 
authors, discussions led by faculty members, and critical studv of 
the members' own works. 

The society endeavors to uphold a high standard of literary production and keep aloof from the 
air of conscious Bohemianism which usually attaches itself to groups which have literary interests. 
The Zeta Chapter has sponsored in the foyer of the Woman's College Library a display of books 
and articles written by nationally known members of Chi Delta Phi, Ruth Bryan Owen Rhode 
and Bess Streeter Aldrich. 

From the standpoint of production as well as of activity this has been a successful year for Chi 
Delta Phi. Two members, Bettilu Porterfield and Virginia Hodges, have had some of their work 
published. Carol Hoover contributes to the Archive. Beth Shaw has attained honor by producing 
a prize-winning poem in Litterateur, the society's national magazine. In order that they may in 
a small way follow in the footsteps of the society's prominent members, the members of the local 
chapter are now arranging for the production of an anthology 
of the works of the Zeta chapter.

Cornelia Goddard 
President 




The Nereidian Club, a local honorary swimming organiza- 
tion was formed in 1930. It is composed of those girls who 
excel in swimming and diving ability. Because of this the 
club has proved to be an incentive to those co-eds interested 
in water sports, and it is considered an honor to be elected 

to membership. The purposes of the club are to recognize ability and to promote efficiency in 
aquatic and diving abilities among the co-eds of Duke University. 

Try-outs are held twice a year to determine the qualifications of those co-eds trying out for mem- 
bership. Tests in diving, speed and form swimming, and other water accomplishments are given 
at this time. The Nereids are admitted on the basis of their grades by a vote of the entire member- 
ship of the club. 

The annual water pageant given by the club is always of interest to the whole campus. Much 
practice is necessary for each of these and on the night of the pageant perfec- 
tion is the keynote. The Nereids, gliding through the water in perfect rhythm 
and form, weave intricate figures. Diving and form swimming exhibitions com- 
plete this program. 

Other activities of the year include participation in the Spring and Fall 
swimming meets sponsored by the Woman's Athletic Association, and varied 
activities within the group. 

The Nereidian Club feels that it has accomplished much toward encouraging 
water sports. Each year the number of girls trying out for membership enlarges.

ALPHA KAPPA PSl 



The Beta Eta chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, the oldest national 
professional fraternity in the field of commerce, was founded on 
this campus in December, 1929, and owes its success at Duke to 
Professor John Shields of the economics department, the Deputy 
Councilor, and faculty adviser of the local chapter. 

Founded for the purpose of furthering through contacts with 
the business world the individual welfare of its members and fos- 
tering scientific research in the fields of commerce, accounting, 
and finance, Alpha^Kappa Psi endeavors to educate the public to appreciate and demand higher 
ideals therein, and finally, to promote better student-faculty relations. 

Each year the fraternity presents the Alpha Kappa Psi Scholarship Medallion to the senior main- 
taining the highest scholastic average in the economics and business administration groups. 

The chapter this year has been quite fortunate in having a number of guest speakers on current 
topics of interest in their own particular fields of commerce. 

These activities, together with a dance and informal student-faculty meetings, have made Al- 
pha Kappa Psi one of the most beneficial organizations of the Duke University campus.

Kappa Kappa Psi is a national honorary 
musical fraternity for college bandsmen 
and musicians. Since the establishment 
of Alpha Gamma Chapter at Duke Uni- 
versity this fraternity has picked as its 
members the best musicians and leaders in 
the numerous college musical organiza- 
tions. Membership is based on musical 
ability and the students activity in the va- 
rious campus musical clubs. In order to 
become a member of Kappa Kappa Psi 
it is necessary for the candidate to have 
shown cooperation and interest in the proj- 
ects and work of the Duke Band, the Glee 
Club, Choir, Symphony Orchestra, or sim- 
ilar clubs. More emphasis is placed on in- 
terest and work than on musical ability. 

The fraternity is first of all a service or- 
ganization. The members are encouraged 
in their study of music. They are urged 
to further their interest in musical develop- 
ment on the campus and in their own abil- 
ity as musicians. Through active partici- 
pation in musical undertakings and pro- 
grams, the fraternity hopes to develop its 
members more fully in campus service and 
leadership. This participation is primarily 
in the work of the Duke Band, the han- 
dling of equipment, and the many other 
activities of the Band. 
This year Kappa Kappa Psi held its regular meetings and dis- 
cussed the means of developing better musical organizations. The 
schedule was not all work and no 
play. The fraternity held several 
smokers and open houses which 
the members and their friends or 
dates attended. In April the fra- 
ternity gave a cabin party which 
was enjoyed by all the members. 
The fifth annual Baton Ball held 
in the spring, climaxed the social 
season and ended this school year 
for Kappa Kappa Psi.

TOMBS 




In 1905, the men of Trinity College realized a need for 
an honorary athletic organization on the campus, and 
founded the Order of Tombs. Today, Tombs still ex- 
ists as the only honorary athletic organization on the 
campus, and continues in the furtherence of its ideals in 
brotherhood, leadership, and sports. Not only has the 
brotherhood strived to foster a finer spirit of sportsman- 
ship on the campus, but it has attempted to cement more 
firmly the relationship between Duke and other schools 
in the field of sports. We look with pride to the past 
and present celebrities of Southern sports whose names 
have been inscribed on our rolls. 

The colorful Tombs informal initiation is a sight that 
will not easily be forgotten. The new members dressed 
in pajamas, laden with buckets, clocks, eggs, and cigars, 
and with their faces blackened, cavorted on the chapel 
steps to the amusement of everyone. But more than 
fun and fellowship, Tombs is fortunate in being able to 
render a substantial contribution to the University by 
sponsoring activities that add to the prestige of both the 
University and the organization. 

Tombs has sponsored card stunts at the football games, 
provided entertainment for visiting teams, conducted a 
very successful community sing, and taken charge of the 
inter-scholastic track and basketball competitions held 
at Duke. In this way we serve the University, and feel 
that through these things we also realize a truer bond 
of friendship among ourselves. Each year as a means of 
fostering the spirit of better athletic relations, Tombs 
presents a trophy to the athlete who during his four years 
has contributed most to athletics. It is with pride too 
that we point to those members of Tombs who are not 
only great athletes, but who also are leaders of the cam- 
pus in government and scholarship. 

Tombs men look back with pride on the brotherhood 
and friendships found in Tombs from year to year.

THETA ALPHA PHI 




William Welton 
Preside/it 




North Carolina Alpha of Theta Alpha Phi was established 
at Duke fifteen years ago, the national chapter having been 
founded at the University of Chicago in 1919. Its purpose 
was and is to increase interest, stimulate influence, and foster 
artistic achievement among the student body, in all branches 

of dramatic art. National requirements for membership are two major roles or four minor roles, 
or the equivalent amount of work along business, make-up, or managerial lines. These require- 
ments may be filled by activities connected with the Duke Players or with other dramatic produc- 
tions on the campus, such as the French and Spanish plays, the musical productions, and the 
Christmas Pageant. 

As usual, all of the outstanding and important positions in Duke Players were filled by members 

of Theta Alpha Phi. Among these members are Gus Forssell, business manager, 

Walt Erich, president, Ruth Auser, capable character actress, Edna Joyner, 

B^\~^) "prop" chairman, Jerry Morehead, actress, Joe Leone, manager of the radio 

^ u^^^wx^l program, and numerous others. Also, we have a large membership of faculty 

M Rr ^7 members, including Mr. and Mrs. A. T. West, Mrs. Neil Dow. Mrs. X. I. White, 

■ U \\lf7 Dr. H. C. Spence, Dr. Hasbrouck, and Mr. J. Foster Barnes. 

^^F l V 4 K - / Theta Alpha Phi has an added attraction for its members. The badge is rec- 

V V^X7 ognized by theatres throughout the country, and its wearer is entitled to admit- 

) **r tance backstage at all times. This gives the member an insight into the backstage 

mechanics of the professional theatre, and an opportunity to meet the celebrities 

of the theatre ; many of whom are fellow-members of Theta Alpha Phi.

DELTA PHI RHO ALPHA 



Delta Phi Rho Alpha, local honorary athletic sorority, was founded in 
1 92 1 by a group of girls who wished to give recognition to those who had 
excelled in leadership in sports. This sorority was created as a sister or- 
ganization to Tombs, honorary athletic fraternity for men, as an answer 
to a demand for better organization of athletic activities. 

Admission of new girls is limited to two juniors and seven sophomores. 
The initiation in March is similar to that of Tombs : the initiates are 
stationed anywhere from the lap of Washington Duke to the steps of 
Southgate. Each future member is garbed in the traditional "goat cos- 
tume" of heavy black stockings, one black and one white shoe, a middy 

blouse, and a short black skirt, and carries a rolling pin and a paddle with the sorority's Greek 

letters painted on it. 

Delta Phi Rho Alpha has centered its interests in the creation of greater enthusiasm for intra- 

murals. In order to realize its aim, the organization sponsors an inter-class basketball tournament, 

awarding a banner to the winner, and a tennis tournament in the spring, giving the victor a cup. 

Each year a key is awarded to the senior who by her leadership, sportsmanship, and athletic ability 

throughout her four years at Duke is considered the most outstanding athlete. 

The sorority has become very active on the East Campus. It carries out its purpose efficiently 

by stimulating rivalries among the organizations of the campus, 

and by promoting participation in healthful sports by all girls 

who are interested. Delta Phi Rho Alpha is doing much toward 

fostering any athletic activities that will add to the prestige of the 

college and its organizations.

DELTA PHI ALPHA 



Buck Koenig 

President 




Informality was the keynote of this year's activity of Delta 
Phi Alpha. Emphasizing a rather haphazard social schedule, 
the group was given an opportunity to put their recently ac- 
quired mastery of the German language to some practical 
test. The nonchalance with which the meetings were con- 
ducted appeared to be conducive to a certain stimmung which made the members more eager to 
participate in the mutual handling of the German phrase. At first, in many cases, what had been 
meant as an expression of some thought in German — seemingly so smoothly constructed while still 
lodged in the dark of the mind — degenerated into mere embarrassed mumblings of "Ich will sagen 
. . . Ich meine . . . Wie sagt man es? . . . Ach, Sie wissen doch was ich sagen moechte!" How- 
ever, as the year progressed, a greater facility was developed in the handling of conversation. 
During this active year the organization sponsored numerous parties, picnics, hikes, and bicycle 
rides at which the policy of speaking only in German was carried out. Since 
^fe <^A accordion virtuoso, Lee Vernon, was among the group, German songs were 

fUf^ V^or « sung at all functions. 
Mm&^r \~\\(y Membership in Delta Phi Alpha is based on a scholastic average of 2.25 

fcy^ quality points through the second year of college German, besides having 

V \\J/y shown some particular outside interest in German. This year the group was 

I ^ A jr under the leadership of Buck Koenig, assisted by Hugh Meyers and Edwina 

\ yd& Sundholm. The figure of faculty adviser Young was, as in years past, always 

/ ^ present, offering the group his invaluable assistance, and looking on tolerantly 

from the background, slightly amused, but pleased by our happy efforts.

TAU PSI OMEGA 



Tau Psi Omega is in its second year as an honorary 
organization on the Duke University campus. Its 
organization dates back ten years to a small group 
of enthusiastic students who met occasionally at the 
home of one of the professors, in order that they 
might speak French and so increase their mastery 
of the spoken language. These meetings continued 
at irregular intervals for a period of two years and 
proved so successful that they were opened to a 
greater number of students. The hitherto unnamed 
group became Le Salon Francais under the able spon- 
sorship of Mr. and Mrs. Neal Dow of the Romance 
Language Department, and its members began to 
meet every Thursday night for coffee. In 1935 it became the French Club which met every Wednes- 
day in the President's Club Room, at which time many interesting and beneficial programs were 
held. The purpose of the French Club was to aid students of French to become more fluent con- 
versationalists through such informal mediums as playing games, discussing current events and 
campus news, and giving little plays or skits. Every year the membership increased, and became 
more and more efficient in fulfilling the purpose of the club. Some 
of the more advanced students began to feel that they were not 
gaining ground and wanted a more limited group in order to do 
more serious work. Thus, Tau Psi Omega came into being. This 
honorary fraternity perpetuates the purpose of the French Club 
with an active interest in dramatics, literature, and art.

FRIENDSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, 

At home in their respective houses, quadrangles, and sections, the eighteen fraternities at Duke 
carry on their college life. Each fraternity with its special pride and joy, whether it be a La Salle 
convertible or the biggest playboy at the University, is held together by its own secret bonds and 
ties of brotherhood. 

The social life of the fraternities is varied. This year each fraternity opened its fall social season 



1 60 




by welcoming old brothers and friends at the football 
open houses which were held before and after the 
home football games. Winter found the fraternities 
giving their annual dances and parties. Perhaps the 
busiest time of the year for Duke's brotherhoods was 
rush week. Forced by University rules to confine 
Freshman rushing to one week, the fraternities filled 
that week with dances, cabin parties, smokers, and 
numerous other entertainments for the rushees. Rush 
week, preceded by weeks of planning and preparation, 
and followed by weeks of adjustment and organization, 
is the most important event of the fraternity year. 

The fraternities welcomed spring with cabin par- 
ties, hay rides, steak frys, and bicycle parties. Hand 
in hand with spring came politics. Fraternities at 
Duke are divided into combines, the blue and the 
white. Each combine boasts its own political bosses, 
and claims to give an equal distribution of points or 
officers among the supporting fraternities. 

Chi Phi, a fraternity missing from the Duke Cam- 
pus since 1871, returned this year when their charter 
was revived. The installation of Beta Theta Pi last 



FRAT£RMTY 



year and Chi Phi this year brought the number of 
national fraternities at Duke to eighteen. 

Fraternities are an integral part of the student life 
at Duke.

MEN'S PAN HELLENIC 
COUNCIL 




Arthur Peabody 



The functions of the Pan-Hellenic Council were the regulation 
of rushing, pledging, initiation ; and as the sponsor of the seasonal 
dances, the Council took the lead in the social life of the campus. 

A new field of service was instigated this year. The Council 
endeavored to aid the freshman in the choice of his fraternity by 
conducting a series of house meetings primarily for enlightening 
the new men on the various problems concerning the fraternities 
and their respective values. 

This year the Council again attempted to bring about normal 
relations between the freshmen and the fraternity men. An open 
forum meeting was held at which every angle of the question was 
critically discussed. Every logical plan was given a fair and just 

analysis, in order to achieve the ideal relationship. This alone was not sufficient to satisfy the 
Council, so the ideas that had been presented were returned to the individual fraternities for their 
consideration. Opportunity for amendments or complete changes was allowed, and then the 
plan was brought back to the Council for reconsideration. The result was a plan for normal 
relations that overshadowed any previous attempts. Although the new idea had many followers 
in most of the fraternities, it failed to get the necessary three-quarters vote, and as a result was 
defeated in the final vote. 

Notably the Council this year aspired on every occasion to promote that spirit of fellowship 
which is one of the basic traditions of the Duke Campus.

WOMEN'S PAN HELLENIC 
COUNCIL 



The Women's Pan-Hellenic Council has completed perhaps the 
most interesting year of its life — but not without a struggle. For 
a semester, the Council undertook the maintenance of so-called 
normal relations — normal because they differed from previous 
years which were not considered normal. Since normality is 
often considered horribly dull and uninteresting, the Council 
gave a tea in the fall to honor the freshmen and transfers — the 
sole function retained from the past in honor of the new girls. 

But the past claims as its own much that is valuable, for the 
Council continues its project of providing a $100 scholarship for 
the most deserving senior girl. To raise this sum, the Women's 
Pan-Hellenic Council offered the campus a dance in the fall 
which proved to fulfill all expectations — aside from the "choice" 
entertainment, the above mentioned small sum was cleared. 
Thus you see that, despite the Greek name, the Pan-Hellenic Council has functions and in- 
terests which extend beyond the typically Greek — not to cast disparaging remarks on the 
Greeks, who, after all, are neutral like us, even though inclined to frivolity (whether or not we 
are, you are the best judge) . 

Returning from the international scene and limiting ourselves to Greeks, the council this year 
put into practice the bare skeleton of what is known as deferred rushing rules which it hoped would 
be obeyed and which were — think what you will — or rather what rumor has willed you to think. 
Time may prove deferred rushing to be an entire failure ; it may, on the contrary, prove it to be 
the evolution of a system benefiting both rusher and rushee to the highest possible degree. The 
I 939 _I 94° Council has initiated a revolutionary step ; it has done all that a revolutionary govern- 
ment can do. It is to the future, to the succeeding councils, which will no longer be revolutionary 
but merely carrying a revolution to its logical conclusion that the council bequeaths SUCCESS.

ribald have met, and merged, and furnished us with tales to tell our 
grandchildren — tales of brothers and their deeds, of fraternity func- 
tions, of good-fellowship, and, above all, of Alpha Tau Omega. 
We'll recall the men who came from seventeen states to bind them- 
selves together here into a fraternity, brothers by deliberate choice ; 
and friendship will be more than just a word.

BETA THETA PI 

"There's a scene where brothers greet 
Where true kindred hearts do meet. . . ." 

This scene, beloved of all "Betas" on the Duke 
campus, is in our chapter room in House "H." 
Here we have an excellent opportunity to ob- 
serve the characteristics and idiosyncrasies of the boys who constitute the Gamma Rho 
Chapter of Beta Theta Pi : 

Jess Hadsell, of the "Western Virginia Hadsells," Vanderbilt's gift to Duke . . . "Big 
Red" Woolley, our sophomore soccer sensation . . . Bill Ludwig minus his pin in spite 
of Bull Durham . . . Frank Baker playing "Hold that Tiger" and "Love Lifted Me" on 
the piano . . . George Gundlach dozing at the bridge table, much to the exasperation of 
his customary partner, "Friendly Fred" Surlas . . . Bob Aufhammer "dirty-rushing" his 
roommate . . . "Dan" Dunne, Campus Informer No. i . . . "Baron" Vennell, who takes 
his vacations seriously . . . Sam Beckel, liaison between the "drunken Betas" and the 
"long-haired" boys ... his brother Frank, "Old Beck," running things with "Simon" 
Miles, his prime minister . . . "Stomp" Neaves, who evidently believes in combining 
business with pleasure . . . Chet Blodget, whose girl friends are always getting married, 
but not to him . . . Ed Sargent, who makes Munchausen sound like young George Wash- 
ington . . . Larry Everett handling the shekels . . . Bob Atwell having woman trouble 
. . . Alex McMahon nursing the "Mayflower" . . . "Little Joe" Simpson, whose girl gives 
Glen Miller dances . . . John Colley, always looking for an argument and often finding 
one. 

This is Beta Theta Pi's first year on the Duke campus. The local group, known last 
year as the Beta Theta Pi Club, was granted a charter at the Centennial Convention of 
the fraternity in August. The charter was formally conferred at a banquet held on 
October 6, 1939, in the Duke University Union. Later in the fall, members spent several 
week-ends visiting other chapters in the district in an attempt to establish immediate 
and friendly relations with them. We also entertained members of neighboring chapters 



166 



— notably the brothers of the North Carolina Chapter at an Open House on 
the afternoon of the Duke-Carolina football game. It has been a pleasant and 
successful year for us, both as individuals and as a fraternal group.

With Griffin gone . . . the meetings are strangely quiet . . . we miss

"Scoop" wanted to write a column on wrestling ... so he asked "Bolo" to show him 
some holds . . . "Scoop" wasn't exactly stiff the next day ... he just couldn't move. 
"Crash" Davis spends his time . . . when not directing Duke's baseball prospects ... in 
the company of a pretty young miss ... in Greensboro. 

Frank Ribar . . . appeared at a stag rush party . . . with Lib . . . and none of the boys 
minded a bit. Ruffa pleased us all . . . by making his average . . . and pledging up. 
Eldridge showed real fraternity spirit ... by smashing his hand ... so that Ribar could 
fight. 

Bob Miller . . . one of the "first floor princes" . . . haunts the second floor . . . because 
the phone is right there . . . and with a phone . . . Shirley is on the other end. 

Tantum . . . the big-money man . . . has about six accounts to keep . . . and is slowly 
going "ga-ga" thereby . . . and he also has to keep account ... of "Butch" Shiffer . . .

A loud din issues forth from the portals and through the broken windows of ivy-covered

ing at Weit's record-breaking sprints to the third floor . . . Stanwood's eye-filling Duke

As the years roll on, we of Delta Kappa will look at this one in retro- 
spect and find much to remember things which affected each of us 
personally : namely, lasting friendships, amicable companionships and 
the benefits derived from living together with the brothers. 

When we think of the chapter as a whole, we will recall its being 
confronted with certain obstacles, but, thanks to the excellent guidance 
of our officers and faculty adviser, coupled with the cooperation of 
each and every brother, we will remember with pleasure the sur- 
mounting of those obstacles. 



172 



Aside from the gratifying memories which none of us could forget 
are the more amusing ones which we will recall with a smile at some 
future "bull session," saying, "And thereby hangs a tale." It is this 
type of reminiscence that in future years will have us saying, "Ah, 
youth! How joyous, gay, and careless is youth!" 

Space does not permit a detailed account of the "thereby-hangs-a- 
tale" memories, but for future bull sessions a few words will suffice to 
give rise to volumes. For instance, how could we forget "the Pistols" 
meeting at Rinaldi's, imbibing a few beers and expounding their phi- 
losophies of life . . . The dating "Delts" of Delta Kappa doing the 
same thing but a bit more smoothly . . . The rest of the "Delts" doing 
the same thing . . . The "Pin-ups" of "Mellon-Head" Thomas, "Mouse- 
face" Pittenger, and "Magnolia" Brown and the subsequent serenades 
. . . Dottie's unpinning Thomas "Mellon-Head" and pinning up "Doc" 
in true Leap Year style by giving him her pin . . . Pittenger a veritable 
hound but a good bill collector . . . "Uncle" Dick, "Red" and "Joba- 
bo" with the aid of three girls ingenuously saving enough to pay their 
dues each month . . . Bolte's playing big brother to Jarvis . . . Bolte's 
"knifing" Clay and Clay in turn "knifing" Dean . . . "Knifing" in 
general and ad infinitum . . . Herv and Beau wrangling for hours over 
a gill of gas and a spoonful of oil . . . Greensboro and all that goes with 
it . . . "Diav" (Sanborn to you), "Han" and the "Pivot" shown up 
by les femmes when it comes to riding (more action for the diary!) . . . 
"Snerd" Babenzien and his Cooks . . . The "Killer" and Rawlings 
talking about their feats . . . Morrow in a jam at the Alardi Gras . . . 
The Paddock featuring the "Jeep," "Louie the Pious," "Neubie," 
"Pivot" and the "Gee Gees" . . . "Pivot's" black eye . . . "Snakey" . . . 
Frank and his paddling scheme . . . Nicholson and a group singing 
around the piano . . . Red and Davey's cars . . . Glorious rush week 
. . . Cabin parties . . . Dances . . . "Knock-rummy," cussing and bridge 
. . . Snowballs, windows, new furniture, and etc. ad infinitum. 

Last but not least, we will remember a grand group of promising 
pledges. When the time comes, they too, will become brothers in 
Delta Kappa, bringing what they have to offer, and being given every 
opportunity to take advantage of 
what there is to receive. We know 
that they will also find friendship, 
happiness, and pleasant memories.

KAPPA ALPHA 




As we drop in on the Grand Old Gang we are 
met by smiling Hiatt who takes us into one of 
the chapter rooms where we find Farley, Wins- 
ton, and Johnston getting ready to play bridge 
while Ducker looks for a fourth. East is busy 
improving Petty's drawings, while Fulp haunts 

the corner by the radio, beating it out with Glenn Miller and the boys. Greathouse 
comes in and tells Inks to stop chasing Porty around the walls or a fine is forthcoming 
. . . Erickson, Gulp, and Fulton leave for that late afternoon show . . . Brinn dashes out 
to another meeting or to meet Betty . . . Bashful Beau Brummel Blanchard arrives from 
the East still blushing . . . and Hank comes in to give a pep talk for intramurals. . . Bone 
(M. D.) asks us in his quiet bedside manner to go to the other chapter room where we 
find Glisson shouting at the mirror, "I hate beer" . . . Honaker is just leaving for the 
gym for a round of boxing, basketball, and a little exercise in general, while Cannon goes 
"Ever Eastward" . . . Hubbell is still haunting the chapter rooms . . . Smart comes in 
to remind Smith and Range that it's the 15th, and Horn disgusted, decides to try study- 
ing . . . Glamour-boy Peterson and Pearce, the Southern Gentleman, come in, greet us, 
and leave again with Epperson . . . "Slowboy" San manages to make the chapter room 
and gently reclines in a chair, listening to Ryon's version of Beethoven's last melody on 
the chapter piano . . . Rhyne, Kemp, and Atkins try to convince each other that now 
is the time to visit the Tavern . . . Cole rehearses one of his chapel talks — greatly aiding 
the confusion, and Souders listens attentively for possible grammatical errors . . . Shivers 
invites us to the skating rink with Farley and Erickson . . . Boeddner, who wants to make 
a call, pulls his hair while trying to get Sellers out of the telephone booth, and Shackel- 
ford makes a picture of it . . . Herold heads for the hospital (nurses' home) . . . Goodson 
tries to calm things down with his "Never Worry" . . . Daniel catches a ride with Davis, 
who is just leaving for the Goody Shop with most of the chapter. We fondly bid adieu 
as Foreman comes down the hall singing about his Kappa Alpha Rose.

The Duke chapter, Eta Prime, was established in 1873, 
and is the second oldest chapter in the fraternity. The 
boys form a very diverse group, coming from all sec- 
tions of the country — from Massachusetts to Oregon to 
Florida, yet it is one of the most closely-knit groups on 
the campus. 

"Smitty" Little is still trying to figure out how he 
should have explained the lip stick story . . . "Bing" 
Dacey spent most of one evening in the closet until he 

176 








found out it was only a brother at the door . . . "Senator" Gar- 
rick has toed the "straight and narrow" as only a S. G. A. man 
can . . . the Yacht Club went to Randolph-Macon for a dance 
— but due to unforeseen occurrences returned without making 
the dance . . . Willie Smith claims it was all those ten per cents 
that caused the nervous breakdown . . . "Injun Joe" Imler, 
the resin man, is still amazed at the way these "furriners" 
wrestle . . . Lou Maltby's explanation of the "better half's" 
Chapel Hill date still sounds funny to the brothers in spite 
of the letter about a day's business . . . "Double O" Brown, Ray McDermott, the "spe- 
cial," and a stubborn lock on the door of Dormitory "A" have caused more than one 
disturbance . . . The boys can't figure out whether Bill Peters has acquired an inside 
track on a job after graduation or whether it's really love . . . "Red McDonough has 
been pondering ways and means of ridding himself of the name turf-back next season — 
it seems last season did little toward that end . . . "Heigh-ho" Silva lost an important 
bet to "Rajah" Robinson but he's still in there fighting — down but never out (?) says 
the one man gang . . . and then there's "Finny" Singleton studying like a "Phi Bete" 
but not making it, and also Bill Horton not doing either — even though Georgia is a long 
way off . . . Harvey Kellerman and Norv Garrett have been threatening to duel it out 
at thirty paces in the chapter room some night and the brothers have promised not to 
attend — but the second floor is backing "Beak" to the limit . . . and the day Fred Auld 
finds a man he can't either out-wrestle or out-argue, we'll admit the millenium has ar- 
rived. . . . 

And so it goes. We think they are a swell bunch. To the seniors who are leaving, 
we bid a regretful "good-bye." May you all drop back and see us as soon as possible — 
and the Chapter Room is yours the night of the Carolina game. Wherever you go or 
whatever you do, we all wish you all the luck in the world. You're real "Kappa Sigs" 
and we're proud of you.

LAMBDA CHI ALPHA 



The year 1939-40 was a memorable one for Lambda Chi Alpha. Of primary importance 
was the merger with Theta Kappa Nu, which took place prior to the opening of college. 
Lambda Chi retained its badge and name, with only small changes being made in the 
coat of arms and the ritual. The addition of the Theta Kappa Nu chapters made Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha a third larger than it was, and it is now the fourth largest fraternity in the 
country. 

At Duke, the Gamma Theta chapter is known for its scholastic standing . . . one of the 
best fall dances . . . sings held at "Scotties" . . . two clarinets, a horn, and a piano in 
Phi Delt McMillin's orchestra. 

Outside of the undergraduates Lambda Chi is well represented on the campus. Fac- 
ulty members are in the Forestry, English, Economic, and Political Science Departments. 
Graduate students are in the Medical and Law schools, numbering seven in all. At this 
writing, Lambda Chi has just pledged and associated ten freshmen of whom we are all 
proud. 

Among the Cross and Crescent wearers will be remembered 
. . . Wilson and Peabody's trip to High Point . . . Kelly's acro- 
batic and verbose opinions in meetings . . . "Lover" Walter : 
taming of the shrew in reverse . . . O'Neil taking up smoking 
with his brother's pipe once . . . Somerville for his puns . . . "Eye- 
brow-rubber" Hunter and "Swede" Johnson's non-aggression 
pact . . . Bragg and his banquet jokes . . . Lawson in his glory at 
cabin parties ... B. J. as secret operative No. 62 . . . Shannehan 
and his valentine nurse . . . "Playboy" Cogswell visiting the big 
city on becoming of age . . . Schmidt : "Maybe I'll get a letter 
tomorrow" . . . Embezzler Wanzer bowling 69 and 133 consecu- 
tively . . . Brush burning the toast . . . "Stu," a living example 
of a time-table . . . Parke still FRAN-tic . . . H. A. Leland spon- 
soring one girl and taking another to the dance . . . Where did 
Piatt learn to pass the blackball box? . . . Schenkemeyer and 
Hendy with their bottle collection . . . Editor Gray had a time in 
Charleston . . . Melson's noise all the time . . . Lamason's lost loves.

Leading the "Phi Delt fleet" is "Prexy" Berner, dragging his many

camp Lautz, with his pin in one hand and his queen in the other. Next 
is "Beauty King," ex-"Wild Bill" Flentye, torn between Pegram and

and snowball thrower par excellence . . . "Senator" Jackson whose inspirational speeches 
will long be remembered . . . Johantgen, Moody, and Weith as the lovers . . . MacNairy,

but is always borrowing . . . "Byron Nelson-Babe Ruth-Marshall Goldberg-Tyrone 
Power" Carter . . . "Swing and sweat with Joe Bonnet" . . . "Driver" Duncan studying 
"up a Storm" . . . "Esquire" Witmer selling accordian-pleated suits . . . Slimbaum and 
Laybourne, two "pre-meds" heading for business administration . . . "Fireballs" Shoaf 
and Vidal — P.S. We wrote this column . . . Nocturnal prowlers Lose and DeLancy with 
a couple of nocturnal prowlerettes . . . Electrical genius Cochrane and his always helpful 
"roomo," Waldron . . . "Man about Town" Habbersett debating about which girls to 
date . . . "Cagey" Keagy caging coppers . . . "Cognac" Shubrick and his thirty-two

tiny of Bethlehem Steel . . . Schoonover trying to get into the "Wood." 

There they are — as a group, striving, seeking, and finding — boys of whom we are proud. 
Some of them will be gone next year— and we wish them the best of luck — but our pledge

The boys of the Skull House will always be remembered

"Gypsy Rose" Gannon, versatile athlete, laughing so hard as he 
tells a story that nobody can catch the point ; globe trotter Halsema 
photographing every foot of a trip across the continent ; Hanson, 
who never gets excited, being completely baffled at managing intra- 
murals between dates ; Hastings, though an engineer, the most oblig- 
ing fellow who ever did a favor ; Jordan, the linguistic, fighting fugi- 
tive from a Japanese concentration camp, merely playing bridge ; 
Maxwell, our most persistent student, demonstrating a well-rehearsed talent at prestidigi- 
tation ; and McGough a surprise package, who probably buys a new joke book every dec- 
ade. We could never forget Russell, whose laughter has often proved as valuable to us as 
his capable leadership ; Schlear, our representative from Hamburg, who lives for cross- 
word puzzles, baseball, his radio, and a nurse ; Sheals, an industrious worker at everything, 
who has a charming reason to commute to Washington ; Thompson, formerly quiet as a 
mouse, who now has burst his scholastic cocoon and wants to try his social wings ; Trabue, 
a Dean's List alternate, who discovered dating was really a serious matter ; Tischler, out 
of retirement, who is finding that college life is something to be enjoyed if one knows 
how ; Wentz, ardent Pennsylvanian, who drives what is probably the biggest car in his 
state ; Andrews, the boy with a smile, who makes us feel good by laughing at every joke 
we tell ; Carson, unfortunate treasurer, who is the most enthusiastic unorthodox bowler 
in ten counties ; Nania, football guard, who plays the piano by ear, not by hand ; Skin- 
ner, self-styled Southern gentleman, whose imitation of Hepburn is better than Kather- 
ine herself; Hill, Duke Players social lion, who would die if he could not find a wise- 
crack for every emergency ; Vickery, "smooth" baseball player, who is depriving the 
East Campus of some expert courting ; and Dickey, Olympic diving material, who orig- 
inated his own system of bridge and was present at its failure. 

These are the boys who form our fraternity, and these "Phi Kaps" we will always 
remember.

PI KAPPA ALPHA 



Secret political meetings, parties and "Purple J.," midnight "jam sessions," all-night 
bridge (?) games, and true fellowship will always be a part of Pi Kappa Alpha. The 
"Pikas" are a congenial and cosmopolitan bunch of boys. Browning, the giant, and the 
invincible boss of the section is famous for parties. The "Beauty King" of Brevard Col- 
lege, Gene Wilson, is a B. M. O. C. at Duke. Bane and Morningstar are quiet boys ex- 
cept on Saturday night with Browning ; and Morningstar is even quieter the days after. 
Wally Moehring arranges the parties and has a liking for vacations in Florida. Wolf is 
a B. M. O. C. of East, and the St. Louis dynamo of personality. "Oh Johnny" Tyler is 
a quiet boy around the section, but recently we've been wondering if he doesn't lead a 
double life. Donnell still thinks "a piano tends to create a better feeling of fellowship." 
Doc Newman spent his Christmas vacation in Albemarle. Has he taught her to play 
bridge? Patterson astounds the city boys with his "Wabash Cannonball" and wows the 
co-eds with his dancing. "Let me off at East Campus" Stephens will be remembered by 
the brothers as well as by "Red." Browser's plan of retiring and being a wealthy bach- 
elor doesn't sound feasible. "She's hot for me" Zib still dates the town girls, and we hear 
he's a whiz at soccer. Niebel has fun at the picture show and on parties, but he had bet- 
ter be careful about the "husbands." Lineberger still hopes to leave 
his pin with "Bonnie" the next time he goes home — it must be love. 
Calvin, the Hickman flash, doesn't find school like home — the parties 
are different. Clark is still trying hair tonic ... it must be that Cali- 
fornia sun, Harvey! Barnett went home to see what had Gone With 
the Wind. Deane and Houseman are still good friends with "Purple 
J." out of football season. Handsome Ackerman doesn't like East 
Campus and rush week. Booream is still trying to prove that New 
Jersey is below the Mason-Dixon Line. Braswell is thinking about 
stepping into Morningstar's shoes. "Phi Bete" Caudill says the peo- 
ple in Virginia do drink turnip wine. Cozart, the true Southern gen- 
tleman, fell out of love with his Yankee. Creekmore puts women in 
their place, and has a new one every week. Drumm is another quiet 
boy, but Dottie says "You'd be Surprised!" Gould got tired of his 
car and of arguing with Charlie. Robertson, the sturdy boy from

Kirkman displays his black eye, the mark of the pugilist. Heddie still 
boosts those Rock Hill women. Blalock, Dunn's contribution to base-

trotter Hugh Prince. Jennings calls "Baby Boo," and H. H. H. waits

sus, while Gale Johnson loyally backs him up. "Pinkie" (Aquilla H.) 
Joyner, Jr., has turned a blank page. Cecil Lang looks for a stooge, 
while Banks Gates "kibitzes" at a chess game. Is it true that Taylor 
sends himself home by Pony Express? Carl Whitesides wonders what 
makes physics so hard. Menese Gardner upholds the dignity of the 
sophomore class while "roomy" Dodson pledges his little brother. 
Barringer, our scholastic pride and joy, makes potential "Phi Bete" 
out of room-mate Bob Greenfield. "Perky" (ain't she wonderful!) 
Purcell calls someone ... I wonder who? Claude Adams, our Dur- 
ham representative, takes Bill Fritz down to the Diner. George "Faith-

Liles has already kissed the town-girl's "poppa" good-night and is

It was a redecorated section which the good 
Brothers called "home" this year after "Thin 
Man" Yarborough and his cohorts completed 
the renovation program. 

Wandering through the section, one might 
find "Filch" Whitman building bigger and 

better biceps in his own private gym . . . "Feather Features" Cotter softly humming 
"MOONlight Serenade" . . . Gardner and "Mose" Hanlon frantically massaging and 
hoping . . . The "Buckeye Crew," Chick, Katz, and Lou garnering more and more in- 
tramural points . . . "Pinky" Bigham snatching a "nap" . . . "Hunch" McClure playing 
the field while Taylor remains true to one . . . "T. Bone" Perry rolling these days . . . 
"Butch" Schraidt dictating the policies on the third floor . . . Duckett wearing a rut 
into town being followed closely by his running-mate "King Kong" Knight . . . Stearns 
and Guyn duelling at twenty paces . . . "Grigsby" Connar primping for a date .

Campus . . . "Sister" Heaton and "Wallsy" pulling up our scholastic average . . . Strick- 
land tearing off for a week-end supposedly playing the role of Boxing Manager . . . 
"Colonel" Welton sleeping one off, and finally "Beasie" McCutcheon hustling about 
still striving to get to a class on time after four years. 

Thus we are the "Purple Horde" ; Brothers bound closely together by strong bonds of 
fraternalism that will never be broken.

Scene : House "A," first floor Time : 6 145 

Jim Beebe, slight but vibrantly vocal, "hog-calls" 'em in. Commander Park nervously 
wants to get it over in time for the town bus. One other person on time — Lineberry — 
gracefully and like a gazelle cleaning up the place. The poker hounds stir noisily from 
their game, and above Rhobotham's shouts of "Robber," "Par-boiled" Smith meticu- 
lously explains his losses. The drove files in and seats or drapes itself on objects of furni- 
ture handy. 

"C. V." and Clare are urged to kill Count Basie, and "Tailspin" Vogel is warned to 
cut off his motor in the midst of a dive as order is obtained. Mettam modestly combs 
his hair in expectation. Absent : Owen, who is in Chapel Hill getting his pin back 
again ; unexcused. Also absent : "Satch" on official business with the governor ; excused. 

Keusch announces for the good of the brotherhood that he and Manry, Miller, and 
MacGillivray have suffered reverses in the feminine are- 
na. They request cooperation for restoration. "Gordy" 
speaks briefly on the attractions of Atlanta as Mettam 
reaches for the comb. Carswell reports utter confusion 
regarding the situation in the Near East. Benson sug- 
gests intensive rather than extensive campaigns. Mac- 
Gillivray and Hart fairly bolt from the room at the 
tingling of the phone. Fowler rises to remind Park of 
their troth. Rodgers reports on Mardi Gras as Mettam 
smugly combs his hair. Stell states an objection over 
protests from Rulon ; Antoine rises to tell his latest one. 
Richardson issues warnings of carnivals. "Frenchie" 
explains tackling technique as done at "Pop's." "The 
Rock" Files donates a chair. (General applause.) Wolff 
begs for listeners on "Your Duke Parade" and remarks 
that Georgia is a nice state. (Interruptions.) Sherman 
Carswell gives Wolff a cigar. "Harpo" wiggles his ears

"Boo Boo" Brust that they should study ; they open their

"Pretty-boy" Foster finds it very easy to be true to the "One and

opinion that women were fickle anyway. "Stretch" Nickel always 
comes through with "Can't a fellow sleep?" "Bueno" McCloud will 
"Sue" you around the campus, hear? Rex Perkins, the Pun King, 
shows the boys a new one he just picked up from the To To champ. 
"Beard" Read shows us how they swim (and Hula-hula) in Honolulu. 
His side-kick, "Sleepy-Slinky" Slinn, isn't far off, nor are their "Sig-

Sandy Johnson, the quiet one who rooms next to the door marked 
"MEN," is still looking for a room-mate to replace Cummins, who is 
now our Southgate representative, just a step nearer Jarvis. "Perky" 
Pike still says "It's going to be a bit-ter win-ter." "Muscles" Miller 
over there showing the brethern how to do a thumb-stand on a bottle, 
is one of Coach Wade's hopefuls. "Nurse" Nourse, one of the more 
recent romeos : "Who's going East?" Miller. "J. C. Clump" Clamp 
plays everything when not reading the original Ovid's Lover's Manual. 
"Greasy" Creesy brags about native 
Albany (NOT Ga.). And last, but 
far from least "Hotdog" Heath, try- 
ing long shots with a "cherry-bomb"

These are Sigma Phi Epsilon, full

will carry cherished memories be- 
neath the "Sig-Ep" Heart.

ZETA BETA TAU 

Time marches on! And, as it must to all years, 

the school season of 1939-40 has drawn to an 

end. Yet in the memories of each of us will 

live the scenes of the past nine months, during 

which nineteen "Zeebe's" laughed and joked, 

worked and attained, enjoyed open-houses, 

cabin parties, and the many pleasurable activities which fill out a college year. 

take the roll, for "by their deeds, so shall ye know them." 

The suave seniors head the list : "Prexy" Joe, long known as "Smoky," ever sweating 
and fuming in attempts to keep order at meetings . . . "Georgeous" Jim, who, between 
glances at the mirror on the wall has ever been searching for "that breath of air" . . . 
Charlie, the Z. B. T.'s gift to Democracy, a walking anthology of the best in raw Amer- 
ican wit and humor ("C. K." would still like to know the difference between a large 
mouse and a small rat) . . . Max, who will answer to Rhett or Russell, looking for his 
Hedy and revelling in the memory of a W. & L. house-party . . . Leigh, who keeps the 
average "a way up thar" and insists that Dan doesn't know how to bid a no-trump hand 
. . . Phil ("Pepe" to his friends), an alarm clock extraordinaire (ask Max) . . . Herb, matinee 
idol (please wake me for a g:io class). 

We pass to the jolly juniors : "Happy Rap," who declines to comment on paranoids, 
manic-depressives, and "Ginger Rogers" . . . our "Dapper" Dan (forty thousand a week), 
who will someday learn how to bid a no-trump hand (he might even lose at patch . . . 
someday) . . . that Ed, hard-working aspirant to Thespian fame, ever in need of some 
Griffin's Allwite. 

Now the "swoove" sophs : Murray, alias "Jockey," alias "Steamboat," possessor of 
THAT convertible, and patron saint of the Toddle House . . . "Senor" Al, singer, actor, 
and recipient of letters, thousands of perfumed letters coming out of the north . . . "Hub," 
God's gift to Newark and an eminent "week-ender" . . . Marty, harbinger of sporting 
news, whose idea it is to join the "navy" . . . Joe. one of the chosen few who can claim 
the somewhat doubtful distinction of making Bull Durham (he also hates eight o' clocks) . . .

Mort, our boon to intramurals, who originally sponsored the "Sweetheart of Al- '^ r 

pha Upsilon" . . . Len, who insists that he has certain opinions with reference to 
the size of a goat . . . Art, also a sponsor of the "Sweetheart," but she "done him 
wrong" . . . Bob, who insists that the Chronicle has to have ads on the sport page. 13 

And there you have it, one of the grandest group of brothers that ever has a 
"patch" or tuned in on Ellory Queen.

BEAUTY, BUSTLE, BBILLIANCE 

Ten of the twelve national sororities at Duke are located 
in the Pan-Hellenic House on East Campus. The chap- 
ter rooms of this house are the pride and joy of each 
respective group. This year, many of them were re- 
decorated with immense new mirrors, modernistic furni- 





The flower of victory 



ture, interesting drapery, and other innovations. These 
rooms are the center of sorority life, for they are utilized 
for rushing, pledging, initiation, dating, parties, and the 
everlasting Monday night chapter meetings. Here the 
Greeks are wont to gather for a game of bridge, to listen 
to the latest recordings, and even on rare occasions to 
study. 

September of this year found a new national sorority 
on the campus, Gamma Delta. This is believed to be 
the first of several sororities which will appear in the 
future to alleviate the problem of sorority limitation. 
The Pan-Hellenic Council experimented with second 
semester rushing for the first time, so that Freshmen 
were not introduced to the Greek circle until February. 
This social whirl was followed by pledge banquets, and 
dances, cabin parties, teas, open houses and after dinner 
coffees. The faculty were frequently guests on these 
occasions. 

Some sororities were entertained at fraternity parties 
given in their honor at Chapel Hill. Almost all returned

pin below the sorority insignia.

moves on" — leaving behind another page in- 
scribed for A. E. Phi in the book of time. A 
retrospective glance brings into view the many 
and varied activities of the group. The dis- 
cussions at our earliest meetings were mostly 
concerned with preparation for the ensuing weeks. What could be more fitting than to 
start the semester with an initiation? Hardly had the new girls become active members 
when Founders' Day rolled around, and so a passer-by on glancing in the Chapter room 
on October 24 would have found the girls busily occupied in balancing plates of potato 
salad and cold cuts on their knees while listening spell-bound to Mrs. Stern, our honorary 
member, discuss the European situation. Of course, we couldn't forget our social obli- 
gation to the Duke men ; consequently before very long we held an open house to which 
many of our friends on West were invited. However, we not only extend invitations but 
receive them as well. Our petite adviser, Janie, decided that we needed a change from 
our mediocre existence and recommended an evening of recreation — so off we trooped to 
her vine-covered cottage nine miles from the end of nowhere. Time marched on . . . 
Hail, hail, the whole gang was there . . . Where? At our last rush party . . . Paradies, 
our Pan-Hel prexy, taking a postgraduate course at Virginia . . . Gottlieb keeping ac- 
counts for the W. A. A. and keeping account of her men, as well . . . Pessar rooting for 
Carolina — the little Blue Devil — "Faithful Forever" . . . Rubin doing a very modern 
dance and swinging it with all she's got . . . Gunlefmger gazing into all the boys' faces 
with those lovely unseeing blue eyes . . . and then there's always "Love in Blume" . . . 
Cantor trying to be six places at once and making Dean's List with it all . . . Jacobi di- 
viding her time between West Campus library and the infirmary . . . Fuller having Oh 
so much trouble, but smiling through with a butterfly perched atop her head . . . "Hello, 
Faye! What d'ya say" — "Having a wonderful time" . . . Fleet pining for Florida be- 
tween sneezes . . . Dworsky convincing us that "There's something about a Tar Heel" 
. . . Algranti lending all of her possessions to dear old A. E. Phi . . . Kaufmann playing 



204 




basketball and receiving valentines from unknown admirers 
. . . Baylin enthusiastic about everything and never missing a 
trick . . . "Who was that glamour girl I saw you out with last 
night? That was no glamour gal — that was Brandt." . . . Im- 
mediately after rushing we invited the Carolina boys to an open house, so that our pledges might 
become "friendly neighbors" with the "boys from the Hill." We could go on at great length to 
describe our Student Faculty after dinner coffees, which have been an innovation on the campus, 
but we will be satisfied to mention that Dr. Jenson and Dr. Lundholm proved to be fascinating 
and thought-provoking leaders. We must add, too, that this is only the beginning, folks, for we 
anticipate many more such delightful evenings . . . And so the page is filled, but not for all the 
world would we "cancel half a line."

"Every Alpha Phi is quite complete. She looks a 100 
per from head to feet. She has a style, a smile, a win- 
ning way. Every time you see her, recognize her, an 
you'll say — 'there's a girl I'd like to meet'." . . . 

And so you would if you dropped by the chapter room 
or the section in Giles and found the girls rendering the 
above to the tune of the W. & L. Swing. Or perhaps 
your ears would be assaulted by "Throckmorton! 
Throckmorton! Throckmorton!" — this is where the,

needle invariably sticks in the recording made by those four 
eminent Britishers in 104-105. Especially during those trying 
times of exams the air here is thick with the King's English. 
Or you could hear them of an evening at their ale in the local 
Pub discussing the Duchess of Marlboro's Ball and the latest 
Act of Parliament, or speculating as to why the pension from 
home is delayed . . . They have distinguished themselves in sun- 
dry ways during their sojourn in the colonies . . . Prexie Auser 
amuses all with her faculty caricatures . . . Padmore, the person- 
ality kid, is also our nimble interpreter of the Philadelphia Rock 'n Roll . . . Eadie is 
always whipping off for those Richmond week-ends, and Dream-child Alexander still 
prefers the North . . . Mildred can already hear the wedding bells which will peal forth 
in September. Please, don't anyone give her towels . . . Bruce Gooch's love life is too

A party! Yes, I will give a party for the Tri Delts ... a "Design for Living" party. By 
dress, word, or action they will show at my party their innermost secrets . . . Deep down 
in the hearts of every one of us is the desire to be some one, some wish for the future, 
some design for living. So let's pretend. 

Now I'll need some help for my party . . . Rae Rogers, the "Smart" girl, will assist me 
with my plans ... in the kitchen Swearingen with "Swan's" Down Cook Book . . . Bricie 
can serve the "Cookie(s)" . . . and Hughes can "Dunkle" the doughnuts. Griffiths, our 
efficient housekeeper, can set the house in order. 

Before I could get the invitations out, Pete planned her future . . . design to be Mrs. 
Huntoon . . . of course, the regrets came . . . Ballard, away . . . "There's Something About 
A Soldier" . . . Tucker had her "Phil" of parties . . . Weyman, quite "Frank" about it, 
didn't want to come . . . Whisnant awav at Chapel Hill, "Meyer" it's hard to keep her 
in Durham! 

The day of the party . . . my first guest, Driscoll, with her paints and brush . . . "Art"(ie) 
is her design . . . Russ Rogers, not at V. P. I., came in the "Nick" of time . . . Eve Rog- 
ers, our scatter-brain, hasn't arrived . . . not "Hitch" (ed) yet. In the corner Hagemann 
"Converse" (ing) with Gross over her five A's. Where, oh where, is Jessamine . . . out 
"Bob"(ing) around? ... I spied Angela whose thoughts were not hard to "Read" . . . and 
Mitchell dressed as an Olympic star . . . and Grant as a literary 
genius . . . and my word! . . . Annie, "Where did you get your 
twins?" . . . Will there be "Moore" . . . King dressed as a dairy 



maid 



Neushul looking like our All-American girl 



and 



Vaughan as a Baroness . . . and Flowers looking and acting her 
part as dictator . . . Lassen, singing "Sophisticated Lady" ; Shy- 
rock, "Tim(e) On My Hands" ; Elliot, "I've Got To Go Where 
You Are" . . . Yon murmuring "Confucius Chan say, 'Little Girl 
You're The One Girl For Me' "... Gracely's math designs and 
life designs keep her going around in circles . . . Donehoo having 
a "Heller' a time . . . and in the corner, Williams knitting away 
on some socks for Tom, while Leonard is dancing to the tune of 
"Dream Girl of P. K. A.

Theta's magic mirror smiles down from the 
wall reflecting another happy year for the girls 
who wear the kite. Rosie, our efficient pres- 
ident, always ready with a helping hand ; love- 
ly Glenn, pledge captain par excellence ; Max- 
ine of the Leap Year Sing fame busily editing 

the Duke V Duchess with time out to do an excellent job as rush chairman ; Jan, always 
looking like the cover girl of Mademoiselle keeping us entertained with motion pic- 
tures of life at Duke ; Dottie Porritt also contributing excellent movies and bringing 
Forum speakers to the campus ; Charming Shotzie, always pleasant and even tempered 
working with Social Standards and Pan-Hellenic ; Bidge, busy keeping up Theta cor- 
respondence ; Prudy, and her wonderful vacation in Florida, her lovely blond hair al- 
ways so neat ; Billy presiding over Bassett, Theta's ever laughing bidge fiend ; Betty 
Douglass, financial wizard ever pleading for prompt payment of dues ; Little Rausch, 
president of Music Study Club, lending her percolater to Lou who struggled with Sun- 
day breakfast in Brown House ; excellent socials ably managed by Sarah whose work in 
connection with rush parties was also greatly appreciated ; Jo Bailey, whose humor added 
much zest to chapter life, worked diligently for Student Government ; Gerry who leaves 
Duke for Columbia Medical School — may her future be as bright as her life here ; Thea 
heading for Michigan, convention bound ; Jimmie teaching the Frisco Hop and in more 
serious moments managing the funds of the Junior class ; Katie attending dances from 
one end of the state to the other ; Kay guiding her freshman group and industriously 
knitting scarfs ; Jean Ustick always sweet and smiling ; Libby, her golden hair conceal- 
ing amazing ability, loyalty, and levelheadedness. 

The mirror presents an ever-changing panorama — remember the suppers in the chap- 
ter room, everyone laughing and chattering and the more serious after-dinner coffees 
when we had prominent professors speak to us, the cabin party that the alumnae gave 
for us and that wonderful picnic in the spring, the Halloween party complete with cider 
and noise-makers, the Christmas party with silly gifts and verses for everyone, that awful

:xam period followed by rushing which brought us sixteen wonderful 
)ledges. Remember too the Saturday afternoon the pledges came up 
o the chapter room and Jan and Porritt practically turned the place 
nto a motion picture lot grinding away with their cameras — then pledg- 
ng Sunday morning followed by breakfast in town. Soft lights and 
weet music help to recall our lovely dance. Next came initiation and 
he never-to-be-forgotten banquet. That last sad meeting dedicated to 
he Seniors. So many things occur to us in retrospect — surprise birth- 
lay parties in the section, bull sessions, serenades for Thetas who donned 
)ins, the inevitable bridge games — thus the past revealed we look for- 
vard to other happy years.

turist, is puttering around the room watering the flow-

voice singing : "Violets, violets, who will buy my vio-

lets?" They are careful how they manipulate because Bolick and 
Williams are lying prostrate on the floor, exhausted from substituting 
in a basketball game. Over in a corner, away from it all, Stroupe 
polishes her fraternity pin with Lucie proctering the proceeding. 
Right in the middle of the floor, hindering progress and traffic, are 
Aunt Frances, Mary Nell, Lutz, and Mimi huddled over a bridge 
table. Marge Braynard pays no attention to all this racket, but is 
wrapped up in art for Art's sake ; and beside her is Lee Hill with 
that silly expression on her face showing that she is thinking about 
"HIM" back in New Jersey. And in this corner we have, ladies 
and gentlemen, Yorke Lee shadow boxing for her bout with Fred 
the next day. Millie is fascinated by Yorke's technique, and Kay, 
or is it Mickey, no it's Kay, refereeing. How could little Ann O'- 
Rourk swallow all the stuff Scott is handing her about getting to heaven on wings? And 
where are Van and Seawell? Probably out catching up on their extra-curricular activities 
— maybe they are working on that sixth subject given only at night between seven-thirty 
and ten-thirty . . . Poor Winks, she doesn't know which side she is on with Powell debating 
both pro and con . . . Who do these bodies on the floor belong to? Craig, Lamont, Cooke, 
and Grace Plyler and they are playing hearts — how significant! What is left of the floor 
space is taken up by Ginny who is giving Betty Ann Hall and Helen Plyler rumba lessons 
while "Pin-another-medal-on-me" Lineberger watches. Next to Lineberger is — you guess 
who — Connie chatting with Chesson about her "Beel." Dot Long, Jane Nobles and Eloise 
are rummaging around in the closet looking for food, and what did they find instead? The 
pledges — Beth Frehse, Norma Wyatt, Susan Bowly, Marjorie Barber, Ann Morrison, 
Sara Vandegriff, Elizabeth Wheatly, Rebecca Duke, Barbara Jervis, Gloria Booth, Eliza- 
beth Spangler, Elizabeth Ecker, Ellen Rankin, and Nancy Wrenn.

PANHEL DAMES 




The Pan-Hellenic Council inaugurated its 
term with a T. Dorsey dance the last of '39. 
The cheers and enthusiasm of the students 
showed an anticipation of future dances next 
year. 

After the lads and lassies had returned to 
books, studies, exams, and were finally pre- 
paring for Christmas vacation, the Council 
presented Charlie Barnett to offer the fare- 
well cheer. A gigantic Christmas tree with 
white sprays formed the motif of the dance 
as it stood in the middle of the floor and re- 
flected glittering lights, depicting the aurora 
borealis. A mammoth sled, set on piles of 
snow and decorated in Christmas green and 
red, formed the bandstand from which cool- 
ing music floated over the dancers as they 
glided amid the splendor of a northern win- 
ter. 

However, the success of the Barnett dance 
was to be dimmed by the traditional Pan- 
Hel series which lasted three days. The 
Greeks led their dates to Friday's formal and 
Saturday's tea dance and informal. For no 
apparent reason Artie Shaw's band under the 
direction of Georgie Auld failed to "click" 
financially despite good music, unequaled 
decorations, and the beautiful vocalist, Kay 
Foster. 

Fearing a slump in social life, the Cotton 
Pickers' Ball was announced. Straw hats 
mushroomed as the spirit of informality 
swept the campus. So the "Young-uns" in 
overalls and straw hats, gingham dresses and 
bows, skipped to the dance for a bit of fun 
and frolic, rural style. Cotton bales lined 
the walls from floor to ceiling and a black- 
faced orchestra competed with the cackling 
of the chickens and the mooing of the cows. 
Dancers climbed over wagons and fences as

they completely forgot the formality usually characteristic of a Pan- 
Hel dance, and the applause which echoed from the gymnasium 
proved that the campus welcomed such "jive" and laughter. 

This year's Pan-Hels, while not featuring as many name bands as 
in previous years, have been well planned, well attended, and en- 
joyed by all.

Coed Balls 

Telephones began to ring and West Campus began to date, for it was time for Thanksgiving Eve 
and the Co-Ed Ball — time for the Co-Eds to show West what it is to hope and be denied, to seek 
and be scorned. And the fortunate few trek East leaving friends sadder but wiser. 

The campus was stirring with excitement and anticipation of the evening's dance as the crowd 
wandered to the Co-Ed Ball fairy-land. A blue sky studded with stars enveloped the winter at- 
mosphere of icicles and snowballs. Cooling music from an icicled bandstand floated over the 
dancers as they glided past piles of snow and gilded evergreens. 

At the intermission the members of Social Standards, led by Jeanne Murphy, formed a graceful 
"figure," as their snowy-white dresses accentuated the winter motif. But the group shared its 
glory with the twenty girls who were announced as candidates for beauty queen. And the dance 
went on to its logical conclusion — the end — leaving memories of a highlight in the winter season. 

But with the coming of Spring, again the Co-Ed Ball transformed Memorial Gymnasium into 
a temple of grandeur. A gigantic parasol covering the entire ceiling formed the motif for the 
spring formal as Jack Payton and his "shawps" played from a pagoda surrounded by pastel-col- 
ored flowers and leaves. Cherry blossoms covering the walls further enhanced the beauty of the 
evening and lent an atmosphere of Spring to even the farthest corners of the dance floor. 

The climax of the evening came just before intermission when Jane Chesson was crowned Beauty 
Queen of 1940. Cameras flashed and dancers cheered as the crown was placed gently upon her 
head. And so Social Standards ushered in the seasons of the year, provided the best in entertain- 
ment, and left the campus anticipating future dances — good dances — the Co-Ed Balls!

FRESHMAN DANCE 

Following campus tradition, the Student Gov- 
ernment opened this year's social season with 
the annual Freshman dance. A dating bureau 
was provided for the bashful boys who were 
afraid they did not know a girl well enough to 
ask her to this dance. This year's Freshman 
class turned out to be a little less backward in 
romance, however, and made practically no 
use of the bureau. The dance, ordinarily a 
little slow in getting started, was given the 
necessary impetus by the upperclassmen who 




slipped past the doorman to look over the new 
crop of beauties. "Dutch" McMillin swung 
out with his boys, and made everyone feel at 
home and like dancing. Although the Fresh- 
men were well outnumbered by upperclass- 
men, the dance was enjoyed by everyone. 



VICTORY RAIL 



In celebration of an almost perfect football 
season, Duke students attended the traditional 
Victory Ball in honor of the football players. 
The woman's gymnasium was decorated in true 
victory style. At the far end of the dance floor 
there were huge pictures of Captain "Sweet- 
pea" Johnson and Coach Wallace Wade. 
Awards were presented to the members of the 



'Sweetpea" swings out.

applause of the dancers. Under a canopy of 
blue and white streamers, Co-eds saved their 
sweetest smiles and "no breaks" for the foot- 
ball heroes, while the usual "glamour" boys 
took a back seat. 



INAUGURAL BALL 



Politics finished for the year, and the new 
Student Government officers elected, April 
brought the Inaugural Ball. As the old gave 
place to the new, the Inaugural Ball might 
have been termed another Victory Ball, at 
least for the favored ones. The students, un- 
hampered by formal dress and fragile corsages, 
danced and romanced to the smooth music of 
Jack Payton's band. The last Student Gov- 
ernment dance of this year turned out to be, 
like the two preceding ones, a grand success.

THE CHOOSING OF A 




John Powers, envied of men, is today the country's outstanding connoisseur 
of beauty. To him, perplexed advertising agencies and commercial pho- 
tographers look for models possessing pulchritude, poise, and personality. 
They are never disappointed. Such is the innate taste and talent of the 
man, that in the past several years he has carefully selected and assembled 



232 







the most breathtaking group of gorgeous glamour girls ever to grace the 
covers of a magazine or enliven the face of a bill-board. In past years, the 
Gibson Girl and the Ziegfeld Girl found prominence before the fashion 
eye of the world. Today, the Power Girl embellishes the fashion salons 
and brings the styles of Paris and Hollywood to supreme elegance with her 
select beauty. 

In his early twenties John Powers felt that his life had been a failure. 
Unsuccessful at acting and in vaudeville, he found himself jobless and 
stranded in New York Gity. One day he saw the advertisement of a com- 
mercial photographer for models. When he applied for the job, the pho- 
tographer told him that he needed seven models, and so John found some 
actor-friends who, like him, were "at liberty." From these eight people 
has developed the prosperous agency which today furnishes models for the 
most commonly advertised commercial products and the foremost fashion 
magazines. 

It was inevitable that sooner or later the editors of the Ghanticleer 
should seek John Powers' help in their yearly problem of 
preserving for posterity, in the hallowed pages of this book, 
the feminine beauty that is Duke's. 

Difficult though the problem must have been, Mr. Pow- 
ers willingly assisted us, and from the photographs of the 
girls selected by the popular vote of the student body he 
has selected ten of the most beautiful. We present them 
in the order of his selection.

According to custom, this year's Beauty Queen was crowned at the 
Spring Co-ed Ball in the Woman's College gymnasium. But this time 
there was an especial delight in watching a girl from Durham receive 
the regal crown. This Co-ed— Jane Chesson — admired by John Pow- 
ers as the most "Natural Girl" of the twenty candidates, stepped forth 
from a setting of cherry blossoms and tea houses as the girl to be fea- 
tured in the 1940 Chanticleer. 

A native of the "Friendly City," and a member of Kappa Delta 
sorority, Miss Chesson, sophomore, has 
been recognized as a beautiful girl since 
her high-school days. As a freshman she 
was chosen one of the ten beauties for the 
beauty section of the Chanticleer. 

Still dazzled by her radiance and her 
brown and English eyes, we are happy to 
see her withstanding the "rush" and, at 
the same time, keeping her popularity with 
the students.

SPRING FROLIC 



And came the day in May when Queen Su- 
zanne Sommers with royal beauty and dignity 
reigned over the traditional celebration of the 
coming of summer. She was accompanied by 
her maid of honor, Helen Gambill, and the 
twelve members of her court. This year in 
contrast to the tale of the Pied Piper of Hamlin, 
theme of last year's revelry, the modern dance 
group portrayed the fascinating story of the old 
South. Southern Colonial, a symphony in mod- 
ern dance, was written for the pageant by Mr. 
Bruinsma. To his music the dancers depicted 
life in the South from the days of colonization 



through the years of the stately plantations, the 
war with its desolate aftermath, to the climax 
of the modern South with its progressiveness 
and industry. 

The complete success of the program was due 
to the cooperation and energy so unselfishly 
expended by students and faculty alike. Spe- 
cial credit should be given to Abigail Pierce, 
Doris Anne Rucker, Miss Modena Lewis, Mr. 
John Gift, Mary Kesler, Marion Baer, Jean 
Ord, and to the many others for their faithful 
work and ceaseless interest in upholding one of 
Duke's most beautiful traditions.

An even greater team than the Rose Bowlers of 
1938! That's the way Duke's 1939 football 
eleven will be remembered, and William Wal- 
lace Wade, for nine seasons head coach of the 
Blue Devil gridiron forces, has said it is true. 
Who should know better than he! 

By and large, the record of that 1939 team 
speaks for itself. Except for one tragic Saturday afternoon in October, 
when fumbles flew and misfortune was rife, the boys in blue were in- 
vincible. With relentless power, the Wade machine rolled to its sec- 
ond consecutive championship of the Southern conference, subdued 
the best in Dixie, and again scaled the heights to nation-wide acclaim.

DUKE 26— DAVIDSON 6 

It was a hot Indian summer day when Duke began its 1939 drive. 
It was an embattled band of Davidson Wildcats who first yielded be- 
fore the explosive Duke offensive. 

The Blue Devils sizzled in spots, fizzled in spots. In all, their per- 
formance was none too impressive, but they came away from David- 
son's Richardson Field with a 26-6 victory, just the same. 

It was late in the first quarter before Duke scored. The Devils 
started a march from their own 28-yard line, with George McAfee 
contributing some fancy trucking. The foray was climaxed by a 17- 
yard lob pass from Wesley McAfee to Big Bill Bailey that went for a 
touchdown and Tony Ruffa, for 59 minutes the undisputed hero of 
the 1939 Rose Bowl game, place-kicked the extra point. 

On the first play of the second period, George McAfee intercepted 
a Davidson pass and went 40 yards down the sidelines for another six- 
pointer, but the Blue Devils were guilty of clipping on the play and 
McAfee's thrilling jaunt went for naught. Then it was that the Wild- 
cats unloosed their vaunted aerial attack which carried them to the 
Duke 25. There Granville Sharpe, the pass-slinging Davidson half- 
back, rifled a pass to Claude Hackney, who accepted the ball on the 
two and stepped across for the Wildcat score. Little Davidson had

it put the finishing touches on the 
job with another in the fourth.

half-time and staged a big scoring party in the 
last two periods to triumph, 37-0.

stubborn Panther defense, the Blue 
Devils roared back from the Pitt 43 
with Gorgeous George McAfee fak- 
ing a kick and loping 36 yards to 
the 7-yard stripe. Robinson hit the 
line twice, Lach tried it once, and 
then Robbie carried it the last two 
inches to a touchdown. Ruffa's 
place-kick was true. 

In the opening minutes of the 
second period, fate began to run 
interference for Pittsburgh. Mov- 
ing off tackle on the Pitt 42, Wes 
McAfee was hit hard, the ball 
popped up into the air, and came 
to rest in the arms of Jack Dickin- 
son, the Panther end. Dickinson 
was off to the races — went all the 
way to the Duke 10 before George 
McAfee nailed him from behind.

PITTSBURGH 

The fates caught up with the Blue Dukes at 
Pitt Stadium. No defeat — not even the memo- 
rable Rose Bowl calamity — was as heart-breaking 
as that 14-13 setback the Wademen suffered at 
the Smoky City. 

Duke started fast that day. Once denied by a 



passer, heaved one down the alley to Dick Cassi- 
ano for a touchdown. The Pitt conversion was 
good, and the score was tied. 

But the Panthers still were having trouble fath- 
oming the tricky Duke attack. Before long they 
found themselves backed to the seven-yard line. 
It was fourth and four for the Blue Devils. The 
time was ripe for the surprise play of the after- 
noon. 

Tony Ruffa dropped back and made prepara- 
tions to boot a field goal. The Panthers dug in 
for the charge and were set to block it. But Tony

did not kick. Instead he took a direct 
snap from center and shot a forward pass 
to George McAfee on the two-yard stripe. 
George went over. Rnffa's attempt at the 
conversion — the one that meant so much 
— was wide by inches. 

Pittsburgh won the game in the third 
period — not without difficulty. A fumble gave the Panthers the ball on their own 43 and they drove 
their May to the Duke 34. Three running plays netted only six yards and it looked like the march had 
been thwarted then and there. 

But Narick and Cassiano duplicated that pass play of the first half. Narick chucked it over the mid- 
dle to Dandy Dick, who took the ball on the 10 and fought his way over the goal. Ben Kish became 
the Pitt hero when he booted that precious extra point squarely between the uprights. 

DUKE 33— SYRACUSE 6 

The Blue Devils gave the colorful Homecoming audience something to cheer about when they swarmed 
all over the boys from Syracuse, 33-6. 

Again it was the great George McAfee and his flying feet that carried the big blue to glory. George 
scored three of the five Duke touchdowns that warm October afternoon and played only half the game! 

George made one touchdown on a pass from brother Wes. The play covered 47 yards. He made 
another on a lateral from Roger Robinson, weaving 60 yards in all. He made a third on a 2g-yard 
dash as Wallace Wade's old reverse clicked masterfully. 

The other two scores were accounted for by Jap Davis, who slipped off guard for 29 yards, and Tom- 
my Prothro, who took a flat pass from Steve Lach to speed 42 yards down the sidelines.

Syracuse tallied in the final period on a 74- 
yard lateral pass play. 

DUKE 6— WAKE FOREST o 

The Demon Deacons of Wake Forest threw 
all sorts of scares into the Blue Devils and their 
anxious supporters. Had not the Deacons been 
afraid to punt to George McAfee, the story 
might have been a different one. 

The lone touchdown of the afternoon was 
manufactured a minute or so before the half- 
time gun barked. Frank Killian had set the 
stage for Duke's victory by punting out on the 
Deacon two-yard line. Red Mayberry, who 
angled his boots for the sidelines that day in 
an effort to prevent long run-backs, kicked out 
and Killian returned nicely to the Deacon 28.

and climaxed a drive with a five-yard sweep of right 
end to give the Blue Devils their game-winning 
points. 

Wake Forest, knocking on the touchdown door 
at frequent intervals, had the Duke stands in a ner- 
vous fit early in the fourth quarter. The Deacs 
reached the five-yard stripe and had two downs to 
do their striking. But Mayberry slipped on a re- 
verse and Bolo Perdue caught him on the 11, and 
three Duke linemen stopped Gallovitch on another 
reverse to spike the Wake Forest threat. 

GEORGIA TECH 

Grant Field in Atlanta is a tough place for Duke 
teams to win. As in 1937, the Blue Devils had to 
kick an extra point in 1939 to beat those terrific 
Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech. The score this 
time was 7-6. 

Duke beat the Engineers to the punch by push- 
ing over a touchdown in the first four minutes of 
play. The Blue Devils blocked a quick kick by 
Johnny Bosch and Mike Karmazin covered the ball 
on the Tech 36. George McAfee and Roger Rob-

inson featured a drive for the score, with Robinson carrying for the last two yards. Bill Bailey 
proceeded to place-kick the extra point that ultimately won the ball game. 

Tech tallied on a break. The Jackets recovered a Duke bobble 
on the Duke 18. Bobby Beers passed to Roy Goree for a first down 
on the six and after one running play and one pass play had failed, 
Beers flipped one into the end zone to Joe Bartlett for a touch- 
down. Goree, who had made six in a row for the season, missed 
the extra point for Tech. 
The Engineers put on a 6o-yard drive in the closing minutes of the game that had the stands 
in an uproar — much the same kind of an uproar that predominated those same stands in 1937 
when Duke won, 20-19. But the Blue Devils stiffened their defense on the 17 and "Cowboy" 
Shaw, the Tech drop-kicking expert, missed a desperate boot to end the threat and the thrills.

As a climax to a colorful centennial celebration for the Lexington 
school the Blue Devils journeyed to V. M. I. to meet the cadets 
coached by one of Wallace Wade's old Alabama stars, Pooley 
Hubert. A capacity crowd witnessed the game which featured 
brilliant pre-game festivities including an address by President 
Roosevelt. The gallant cadets played on even terms with the Blue Devils for one period before 
the superior manpower of the Duke's began to be apparent. Brilliant punting by Bosh Pritchard

and some fancy ball carrying by Pritchard and Captain Paul Shu enabled the cadets to keep 
their goal line uncrossed for one period. Then the Blue Devils turned on their vaunted power. 
They scored two quick touchdowns in the second period, added another on a blocked kick in 
the third, and defeated the flying Squadron, 20-7. Roger Robinson featured all the way in the 
first touchdown foray. His 31 -yard jaunt on a deceptive play all but did the job. The second

football game — saw Duke defeat the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, 13-3, in Duke Stadium 
on November 18. And an unforgettable 
triumph it was! 

The famed Carolina aerial attack that had 
blasted Pennsylvania and N. Y. U. and tied 
Tulane's mighty Green Wave had made the 
Tar Heels the prime favorite as the two 
schools took up their ancient gridiron rivalry. 
But this attack was very effectively smoth- 
ered by a great Blue Devil team that out- 
played and out-smarted the Tar Heels all 
the way. 

Carolina took the lead on the second play 
of the second quarter when Fullback Harry 
Dunkle kicked a perfect 36-yard field goal.

•JVOflTH CAROLINA 5 



That three-point lead was good at the end of the half. 
But early in the third period, with the Tar Heels hold- 
ing the ball on their own 20, George Stirnweiss, Carolina's 
brilliant quarterback, attempted a quick kick. Tony Ruf- 
fa was through to block it and the ball rolled goalward. 
Then it was that Edgar Lee (Bill) Bailey, the Duke end, 
out-raced frantic Tar Heels to fall on the pigskin in the 
end zone for Duke's first touchdown. Ruffa was true with 
his place-kick for the extra point.

In the fourth period, the Blue Devils added insult 
to injury. Dunkle, trying to kick the hard-pressed 
Tar Heels out of danger, saw his kick go out on the 
Carolina 30. At this point, Sophomore Winston Sieg- 
fried took charge of matters for Duke and on dynamic 
line thrusts he fought his way across the enemy's 
goal. Prothro missed the extra point, but it didn't 
matter.

and another touchdown six minutes later. Roger 
Robinson completed the first half scoring by line- 
bucking two yards after a 17 -yard pass to George 
McAfee had set up the tally. 

The rest of the Duke points came in the third pe- 
riod when Tommy Prothro intercepted a State pass 
and set sail for 51 yards to the Wolfpack 11. In two 
tries, Wes McAfee lugged the ball across.

Twice the Wolfpack had scoring opportunities, and twice the Blue Devils rose to turn back the

AN Am/ilim RECORD 



The success of the "Iron Dukes" this year and in the four years that we have been at Duke must 
call to our attention the men who train and direct them. In these four years the Blue Devils have 
been pitted against the best in the college sport. In thirty-nine regular season games there have 
been only four losses, all by one touchdown or less. Added to this of course, is the heartbreaking 
7-3 defeat at the hands of Southern California in the Rose Bowl game in 1939, when defeat came 
in the last forty seconds of the game. This record is a real tribute to the men who coach the Blue 
Devils. 

The entire staff is centered around Head Coach William Wallace Wade, who came to Duke as 
Director of Athletics from Alabama in 1931. With him he brought Ellis Hagler who has remained 
for nine years as line coach, and Herschel Caldwell who acts as head coach of all freshman sports. 
Eddie Cameron as backfield coach and "Doc" Chambers as trainer are also a part of that original 
staff. The only addition has been End Coach "Dutch" Stanley, who came this year from the 
University of Florida. These men from year to year have turned out teams that everyone con- 
nected with the University has been proud of — teams that played the game to win and were good 
winners yet in defeat were just as good losers. So we enter our nomination for the Ail-American 
coaching staff.

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL 
as played at Duke 



Manager Trakas 



Duke's 1939 freshman football team, although unable to 
repeat its undefeated record scored the previous year, 
went through a five-game schedule with a strong eleven 
that was stopped only in the season's opener. Presenting 
an array of yearling talent that should make a consider- 
able name for itself in varsity competition in future years, 
the Blue Imps defeated Davidson, Clemson, and North 
Carolina State, tied the University of North Carolina, 
and lost to Wake Forest. 
In the gridiron season's inaugural, Duke lost to Wake Forest, 7-0, after the Deaclets scored on 
a second quarter pass. The game, waged in Duke stadium, was a see-saw battle, with the Imps 
threatening only once. Morgan and Dempsey completed a brace of passes in the closing minutes 
that advanced the ball as far as the seven yard-line, but time was against the Duke frosh, and they 
dropped their first contest in two years. 

In the second game of the campaign, Duke defied an ominous Friday the 13th and scored 13 points 

while blanking N. C. State in Raleigh. Big Frank Ezerski, plunging Duke fullback, scored all the 

Blue Imp points, crashing over from the eight yard-line and then from the two. Coach Herschel 

Caldwell's eleven played excellent defensive ball and was never threatened by the Wolf Cubs. 

For the season's third contest, the Duke freshmen played host to a visiting Clemson eleven, gain- 



264 



ing a one-touchdown victory, 21-14. Ezerski, Devonshire, and Dempsey provided the offensive 
drive for the victory ; with Zimmerman, Redding, and Hamilton turning in excellent defensive 
performances. 

Next on the Imp's victory list was Davidson, who met Coach Caldwell's eleven in Duke stadium. 
The Duke Imps routed their opponents, 53-0, scoring at will throughout the contest. With nearly 
the entire squad seeing action, many sterling performances were scored by the Duke yearlings in 
the seven-touchdown win. Ralph Morgan, halfback, was the leading individual star, completely 
dominating the second half offense with two touchdowns and passing to Alston, an end, for another. 

A mud-covered Fayetteville gridiron was the scene of the Imps' final game with "rivals No. 1," 
North Carolina. Hampered by the mire, neither team was able to launch a successful offensive 
drive, and the contest ended in a 0-0 draw. Storer and Ezerski nearly succeeded in penetrating 
the Tar Babies' goal early in the game, but the wet ball was too elusive to hold and fumbles elim- 
inated any chance of breaking the deadlock. 

Numerals were awarded to the following men : Alston, Bristow, Burns, Crigler, Davis, Demp- 
sey, Devonshire, Dennis, Dugan, Ezerski, Gill, Hamilton, Hipp, Hoover, Hostetter, Huffman, 
Jensen, Johnson, Linkletter, Loidl, McGrane, Marsteller, Morgan, Radak, Redding, Rich, Rid- 
dick, Romp, Schreiver, Smith, Snyder, Sorek, Stevenson, Storer, Sutfin, Troxell, Tyson, and Zim-

CROSS 
COUNTRY 




Manager Hall, Brett, Droge, Bee- 
son, Jones, Coach Lewis.

Long, Sweeney. 



Duke's Cross Country team came through a three-meet schedule with two wins and one loss. 
Davidson and Guilford fell before the Blue Devil harriers, but North Carolina's Tar Heels again 
proved the nemesis of Coach Red Lewis' hopes for an unbeaten season. 

The Dukes met Davidson in the season's opener and subdued the Wildcats, 19-41. Lawrence 
Brett led the runners to the finish tape in twenty-two minutes and fifty-nine seconds. A Wildcat 
runner took second and Duke took the next five places. 

Guilford was the other victim ; the Blue Devils trounced them 17-42 as Larry Brett again broke 
the tape first. Ralph Jones took second and Bob Long followed close behind in third place. Soph- 
omores Jim Beeson and Hank Profenius tied for fifth, and Art Droge finished sixth. 

In their final dual meet, the Blue Devils suffered a 50-15 defeat inflicted by North Carolina. 
The Tar Heels had five men tie for first place. Larry Brett finishing sixth, was Duke's first man. 

Carolina ran off with the Conference title by taking 19 points. Maryland came second with 64, 
and the Dukes were close behind with 58. 

Lettermen : Lawrence Brett, Ralph Jones, Robert Long, Henry Profenius, James Beeson, Arthur 
Droge, and Charles Zinn.

Coach Warren, Murphy, Senhauser, Latimer, 
Morel, Kirkman, Fraas, Jordan, Brandon, 
Manager Strickland. 



Lacking experienced men in almost every division, Coach 
Add Warren was temporarily forced into the ropes. But by 
working faithfully with a scanty crew of returning lettermen 
plus several of last year's freshmen and the usual novice in- 
tramural participants, he produced a ring outfit that won 
one meet in four starts. 

The Devil mittmen opened the season with South Carolina, 
January 6, and the Warren proteges lost, 5-3, as only Cap- 
tain "Shanghai" Jordan and P. V. Kirkman registered Devil 
victories. 

January 13 saw the Duke ringsters battle Maryland at Col- 
lege Park, and only Jordan, Ed Morel, and Wade Eldridge 
were able to score in the 5-3 Old Liner triumph. The fol- 
lowing week the "Warrenmen" made a successful home debut 
by drubbing N. C. State, 4 J 2-3 1 2, as Dan Brandon, Morel, 
Jordan, and Frank Ribar won four bouts. The battling North 
Carolina fighters handed the Dukes their third 5-3 set-back 
in the last bout of the season, January 17, at Chapel Hill. 




266 



Playing a stiff schedule of nine games which included contests with three new opponents, Duke's 
soccer team achieved only fair success during the 1939 campaign as it won three, lost three, and 
tied three to break exactly even in the season's play. 

A new team, known for its strength in eastern competition, played host to the Devils on October 
18 when the Midshipmen of Navy battled a fighting, inexperienced Duke club through two over- 
time periods, to a 0-0 deadlock. 

Nine days after this opener, the Dukes opened their home season by gaining their second tie, 
a 1-1 struggle with High Point. 

The month of November brought plenty of action to the Devils, as they whitewashed Davidson 
in successive games there and here, 1-0 and 3-0 respectively. Then, after remaining undefeated 
in the first four games, Coach Jerry Gerard's team met defeat at the hands of their old nemesis, 
High Point, 4-0. Seton Hall stopped off here on its way from New Jersey and presented a good 
team to go through overtime to a 1-1 tie. 

Activity during November was brought to a close when Duke lost an exhibition match in Greens- 
boro to Davidson, 2-0. Entering the last leg of the season, Coach Gerard's team played host to 
Clemson early in December to easily conquer the Tigers, 3-0. In the return game between the 
same teams, played down at Clemson, however, the Tigers outfought the Devils to gain a 1-0 shut- 
out in the game which brought the 1940 soccer campaign to its end.

Celebrating a long String of Victories in 
BASKETBALL 



Despite the loss of their star forward, Glenn Price, and 
the early season slump, the Blue Devil Basketeers finished 
near the top of the Conference heap as they won 19 games 
in a schedule of 24 frays, nine of which were won on the 
home court of the beautiful new Duke indoor stadium. 
Coach Cameron moulded his quintet, which proved 
to be a "home floor" ball club, around returning letter- 
men, Cy Valasek, Tom Connelly, Chuck Hoi ley, Glenn 
Price, and Captain Bill Parsons. A host of rangy soph- 
omore talent, "the fast break gunners," which included 
Clyde Allen, Ray Brown, Bill Mock, Hap Spuhler, and 
Bill McCahan plus Bill Flentye, Jack Heath, Bob Moy- 
er, Jim Bowman and Ed Shokes provided a dependable 
corps of reserves to choose from. 

The season opener on December 16 against Hampden- 
Sydney and the only game played in the old gymnasium, 
saw the Blue Devils triumph 59-28, as four- 
teen men saw action for the home five. 
Price led the way with twelve points. Off 
on a pre-holiday, three game trip, the 
Dukes opened their road series in Balti- 
more with a highly-touted Oklahoma A. 
& M. outfit who were out-battled the first 
half 20-21, but whose last half scoring 
drive nipped the Devils, 51-41, as Price 
again set the pace with 17 markers. 

The next day in Chestertown, Md., 
Washington College's court squad fell be- 
fore an avalanche of goals by Clyde Allen 
whose total of 20 points led both teams in 
the 43-40 victory. In the last game before 
Christmas, the Little Blues suffered their 
second setback of the year as Baltimore 
College romped, 40-29.

The first 1940 battle matched the rapidly seasoning Cameron charges 
with Davidson College, and again Glenn Price copped top honors as he 
rang the bell for 12 markers in a lopsided 51-28 triumph in Winston- 
Salem. 

Two days later the magnificent indoor stadium was properly dedicated 
as the invading Princeton hoopsters were tripped 36-27, Price again 
claiming all scoring laurels with 13 points. And then in a return en- 
gagement at Baltimore, the Blue cagers bowed to an ever-formidable 
University of Maryland quint, 32-30. 

The following night saw the big guns of the Navy effectively muffled 
in a 40-27 licking. Captain Bill Parsons netted 10 points for the in- 
vaders. The V. M. I. Cadets entertained Cameron & Co. in Lynch- 
burg, January 13, and despite an off-night, the Devil basketeers eked 
out a 28-25 victory, Price again leading with eight points. 

Back home in the "hanger," as the spacious new gym was so aptly 
dubbed, the Dukes took the Citadel Light Brigade in hand, 51-40, as 
Allen and Holley paced the hosts. Four days later, Banks McFadden 
of Clemson football fame and his Tigers paid homage to the superior 
Dukes, 54-49, as Glenn Price copped 17 points. The Demon Deacons of 
Wake Forest appeared on January 28, for a tour of the new stamping 
grounds, and it hardly met with approval as Allen, Mock and Parsons 
led the Devil gunners in a nip-and-tuck 50-44 win. It was in this game 
Glenn Price injured his ankle. 

Bill Mock proved his worth as Price's alternate as he scored 15 points 
to pace the Cameronmen in a 48-37 home victory over Maryland, Jan- 
uary 30. Coach Doc Sermon's N. C. State charges were repelled 57-27, 
February 1, as big Chuck Holley found the range for 18 points to spark 
the invading Dukes' attack.

against fellow Pennsylvanians when the Blue Devils were 
toppled, 49-35, by a "hot" Penn outfit in Philadelphia 
February 3. Allen was high-point man with 12 points. 
In a return game with Davidson Wildcats on February 
7, Mock again sparked the Duke attack as the home 
slate was kept clean, 47-30. 

The Duke cagers snagged the Conference lead as they 
trimmed the fast-stepping North Carolina White Phan- 
toms, 50-44, at Chapel Hill, February 10, despite Tar 
Heels' Glamack who threw in 21 points. In a two-game 
trip South, Clemson again felt the effects of the flawless 
Devil defense as they were downed, 39-37. On the fol- 
lowing evening in Atlanta, the "Little Blues" were the 
victims of a revenge-seeking Georgia Tech quintet which 
scored a 41-35 triumph in a rough and tumble fray. 

Back into conference competition again, the Duke 
cagers handed Coach Murray Greason's Wake Forest 
charges a second defeat, 44-35, February 15, as Mock 
led the way with 15 points. The highly-regarded Duke 
defense swung into action on February 17, and the home 
courtmen clinched the undisputed Conference lead as 
Washington and Lee hoopsters were trimmed 28-27, a 
battle which many Duke fans called the feature game of 
the season. 

Two days later saw the N. C. State Red Terrors give 
the Dukes a scare in the first half of the skirmish on the 
Duke floor, but effective shooting by Valasek, McCahan 
and Holley paved the way to a 46-37 victory. 

The final scheduled game came February 22, and with 
Duke, in front of Carolina in the Conference race, al- 
ready claiming one victory over the Tar Heels, the stage 
was set for what was an expected capacity crowd. Caro- 
lina center, George Glamack, leading Conference scorer, 
again found the range, and his 20 points 
easily enabled the invading Phantoms 
to snag the return engagement, 31-27, 
as the Carolina fans went into a frenzy. 
The game was the fifth and final loss in 
regular season competition of 24 frays, 
and also the first loss in the spacious 
new auditorium. 

The Conference race closed with the 
Devils leading the pack, Carolina sec- 
ond, with Maryland, The Citadel, W. & 
L., Richmond, Wake Forest and Clem- 
son following close behind. The annual 
tourney matched the eight leaders, with 
the Cameronmen top seeded. 

The Citadel was the Devil opponent 
in the first tournament fray, and the 
Light Brigade was downed a third time,

40-35, in the first round, March 2. 
Maryland, winner over W. & L., in the 
first round also, was paired with Duke 
in the second tourney battle, which the 
Dukes won handily, 44-32, as Mock, 
Price and Allen starred for the Durham 
club. 

Traditional rivals North Carolina, 
survived Clemson, and Wake Forest in 
the first two rounds of the tourney to 
win a final shot at the Blue Devil cagers. 
But it was as if someone had blocked the 



entrance to the Duke basket, the night 
of the final in the tournament, for the 
Dukes made only eight goals all evening, 
while Glamack and his cohorts piled 
up 39 markers to claim the Conference 
crown, 39-23. 

Bill Mock, leading Duke scorer with 
205 points won a coveted berth on the 
'"All-Conference" quintet, while Glenn 
Price and Clyde Allen made second 
team honors. 

As a grand finale to the regular sea- 
son, the Second Annual Duke-Durham 
Scholastic basketball tournament was 
held in the new indoor stadium, March 
15-16, pairing eight of the South's lead- 
ing high school teams in a colorful 
' Tournament of Champions." The 
Durham High School Bulldogs swept 
through the scholastic hardwood con- 
vention as expected, downing a formi- 
dable quintet from Parker High, South 
Carolina, in the finals. 

In regard to the future, as far as the 
Blue Devil court squad is concerned, 
Coach Cameron should be in for an- 
other banner year next season with nine 
lettermen returning from this year's var- 
sity. Glenn Price is expected again to 
spark the Duke offense with his decep- 
tive passing and nifty footwork. A ris-

FRESHMAN BASKETBALL 

Duke's freshman basketball team turned in an in-and-out performance this 
season with the Blue Imps winning seven out of twelve contests and scoring 
403 points as against their opponents 405. 

The yearling quintet started fast, winning their first three games. New- 
port News High School, Belmont Abbey Junior College, and Massanutten 
Military Academy were turned back in this streak. In their next three 
games, however, the Imps met with setbacks. Wake Forest, Durham High 
School, and North Carolina handed them defeats. 

The Duke freshmen returned to their winning ways by setting back 
Davidson's first-year team and Jefferson High School of Roanoke, Virginia. 
In the first of a two-game series against their traditional foes, the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina's freshmen, the Imps went down to a 45-32 defeat. 

In their final three games, the freshmen turned in their best performances 
of the season. They avenged their previous setbacks at the hands of Wake 
Forest and North Carolina State in two of these ; and in the other the Imps 
lost their second game with Carolina, although a second half rally after a 
poor start almost carried them to victory.

With Carolina's two victories, the Tar Babies captured the Big Five fresh-

The Imps played spotty ball throughout the entire season, being on their 
game one night and off the next. The shooting of Bill Wetmore and Larry 
Coyte, forwards, provided their chief offensive weapon while the play of 
Bill Stark, guard, and Art McGrane, center, was outstanding on the defense.

season with another fairly successful record un- 
der its belt. 

The Devils inaugurated the campaign with 
a loss to N. C. State, 39-36, over in the Capital 
City of Raleigh but came back on a jaunt into 
Virginia, February 8, to defeat a fairly strong 
V. M. I. squad, 39-36, with Dave Emmett lead- 
ing the way with a trio of wins. The Gobblers 
of V. P. I. furnished the opposition on the next 
day and fell to a slightly altered lineup of Dukes 
by the same 39-36 score. 

The Southeastern Conference champions, 
the Florida 'Gators, moved into the Duke pool 
February 15 to display just exactly why they 
had been able to go through forty consecutive 
meets without a loss, by smothering Coach Per- 
sons' team under a 56-19 score. 

Georgia Tech renewed the stand of South- 
eastern Conference teams here by coming in 
two days after the 'Gators to take a sound 51- 
24 licking. But perhaps the most important 
clash of the season occurred on February 22 
when the natators journeyed to Chapel Hill to 
meet the powerful squad from the University 
of North Carolina in their spacious new pool. 
Jumping into a quick lead in the medley re- 
lay, the Tar Heels turned on too much steam 
for the Devils and left the pool late that after- 
noon on the long end of a 51-24 score. 

Washington and Lee and William and Mary 
remained on the schedule, and the men of 
Coach Persons came through with two tri- 
umphs in four days as they captured these 
meets 46-29 and 40-35 respectively. 

A 1,200-mile jaunt down to Louisiana State 
University ended the Devils' dual meets as the 
visiting Dukes fell before the powerful on- 
slaught of the Tigers, 51-24, to suffer their 
fourth defeat of the year. 

The annual Southern Conference meet 
brought activities to an end with Duke finish- 
ing in the second spot again in trailing the Tar 
Heels from Carolina by twenty-six points. The 
thirty-four points that the Devils did earn came 
mainly through the victorious efforts of the 



medley relay team of Emmett, Shepard, and 
Moise ; through the diving of Bill Dickey, 
through Nick Moise's victorious pull in the 200- 
meter breast-stroke, and through Dave Em- 
mett's domination in the 400-meter free-style. 




WRESTLING 

Crippled by injuries and loss of men, Duke's 
1940 wrestling team, although scoring its first 
intercollegiate victory since 1934, ended its 
season with only one victory as against four 
defeats. 

Pre-season prospects hinted that the Blue 
Devil grapplers would be a stronger team than 
has represented the school in many years. 
These prospects failed to materialize, however, 
due to injuries which dogged Duke throughout

the year and to the loss of two key-men in Ed 
Langston and Bert Summerville, both of whom 
left school at the middle of the year. 

The Duke matmen opened the season with 
a rush by downing the Davidson Wildcats 1 7 ] 2 - 
14 Yi, thus recording their sole win and the first 
intercollegiate win in six years. Featuring the 
Blue Devils win were the victories of Dave 
Jamieson and "Bolo" Perdue, ex-Duke grid 
star who made his mat debut by pinning his 
man in 22 seconds plus a draw which Charlie 
Stata gained to give Duke its margin of victory. 

From here on, however, the picture changed. 



The Duke matmen could not reach the strength 
needed and dropped four straight decisions, 
losing to N. C. State, V. M. I., North Carolina, 
and Maryland. 

Sole bright spot of the latter part of the season 
was the consistently fine performance turned 
in by Dave Jamieson in the 145-pound class. 
Jamieson, this year's captain, was hailed as one 
of the South's best matmen. It was Perdue, 
gridman turned matman, who attracted most 
attention, however. Campaigning in the heavy- 
weight division, he dropped only one decision 
in five starts.

Facing one of the most difficult schedules in re- 
cent years, the Duke tennis team, with only two 
lettermen out of eight returning from the 1939 
squad, prepared for nineteen matches with the 
backbone of the team apparently lying some- 
where among the five sophomores rising from 
the 1939 freshman team. The veterans, Bill 
Parsons and Captain John Ager, comprised the 
lettermen who were on hand to bolster Coach 
Fogelman's team. Junior Bob Murdick and 
sophomores Don Buffmgton, George Himadi, 
Bob Wilson, Bon Anthoine and Tom Olson 
completed the season's squad. 

The netmen emerged from 1939's seventeen- 
game schedule to win thirteen while losing only 
four matches. The opening two contests found 
the netters at home where they defeated Wake 
Forest and N. C. State. A trip into the lower 
South saw the Devils trip Furman, lose to Pres- 
byterian, and march through the state of Geor- 
gia to vanquish both the University of Georgia 
and Georgia Tech. 

Cornell's Big Red tennis team moved in to 
start a disastrous stand prior to the annual 
northern invasion. The racquetmen lost to 
Cornell, shutout N. C. State for the second 
time, but the State and Southern conference 
championship North Carolina team followed to 
hang two whitewashes on the Dukes with the 
Devils sandwiching a victory over Maryland 
between these two losses. 

A strenuous and hurried invasion of the 
North resulted in complete Duke dominance 
as the Devil netmen successfully hurled back 
the University of Pennsylvania, St. Johns, and 
Rutgers in closely-fought contests before swing- 
ing through Lehigh, Temple, and Richmond 
for the final triumphs of the year. 

Lettermen for the 1939 campaign: John 
Ager, Robert Cantine, Ted Collins, Carl Dix- 
son, William Hulme, Clayton Jones, Robert 
Merchant, and William Parsons.

Sweeping eleven straight dual meets, the Duke 
University's 1939 golf team turned in its second 
straight undefeated season in dual competition, 
ranking it as the South's outstanding links team 
and among the top flight intercollegiate outfits 
in the country. 

The Blue Devils opened their season with a 
25-2 triumph over Dartmouth. On their trip

topped Georgia Tech and Louisiana State. 
North Carolina and Wake Forest were Duke's 
next victims and then on the trip to the North 
the Blue Devils defeated Georgetown, Prince- 
ton, Pennsylvania, Temple, and Swarthmore. 
A 16-2 win over Washington and Lee closed the 
season. 

In addition to their undefeated dual record, 
Duke's golfers won three of the four team cham- 
pionships which they entered. They captured 
the Southern intercollegiate crown at Athens, 
successfully defended their state title, and won 
their fourth straight Southern conference tour- 
nament. In the National intercollegiate cham- 
pionship in Des Moines after school closed in 
June, playing against the best that college golf- 



ing circles could offer, the Blue Devils finished 
fourth. 

Individually the Duke golfers turned in some 
far above average performances. At the South- 
ern intercollegiate tourney "Skip" Alexander, 
the Blue Devils' number one man all season, 
won medalist honors but it remained for Joe 
Taylor, a comparative unknown, to pull one 
of the year's biggest upsets in winning the indi- 
vidual laurels. Bobby Brownell was individual 
winner in the State tourney with Taylor as run- 
ner-up while Alexander was tops in the Con- 
ference meet followed by Brownell and Taylor 
in that order. Thus, in Alexander, Brownell, 
and Taylor, Duke boasted three of the South's 
outstanding amateur players.

The third Lacrosse campaign at Duke University brings troubles and worries to student and play- 
ing-coach Ray Brown as he faces the task of developing a team from ten veterans and a host of 
inexperienced men. 

Only one All-Dixie League player returns to form a nucleus around which the team can be 
built. This single player, Ray Brown, is the skillful sophomore who is also to act as coach. Last 
year's sheepskin parade included three former All-Dixie men as Dick Lewis, former student coach, 
Bill Riley, and Jack Pierce left, causing the problem of filling three large gaps. 

The following veterans ; Ray Brown, Bob McGough, Oscar Hank, Tim Brinn, Gene Wilson, 
Jesse Carll, Andy Meara, Jim Levy, Charlie Kemper, Harold Cruickshank, and Don Rencken, 
are the men upon whom Brown is depending most to form the regular team. Jack Persons will 
serve as advisory coach with Andy Meara doubling as manager and player. 

The 1 939 season was very successful with Duke winning seven out of the eight games played. 
The opener was late in March when the Devil stickmen moved into Glemson to smother the in- 
experienced Tigers under 17-3 and 30-0 scores. The traditional rival, North Carolina, was next 
on the schedule and was defeated 15-8 before its supporters at Chapel Hill. The University of 
Virginia was the next host to the Devils, and, despite warnings of the Cavaliers' strength, the 
Dukes emerged from this contest on the long end of a 9-1 count. Then, returning home for the 
first time, the Devil stickmen met the Tar-Heels and again triumphed, this time 8-5. 

But the good fortune of victory "where' ere they roamed" could not remain with the Devils for-

ever, and the Generals of Washington and 
Lee ended the victory streak by defeating 
Duke 5-3 at Lexington. Returning home 
for the final two games of the year, the 
Devils battled through two exciting over- 
time periods before gaining revenge on 
Washington and Lee, 5-4. Only the Uni- 
versity of Virginia remained among the 
rivals for Duke, and the Cavaliers suffered 
an 8-2 defeat before a large May-Day au- 
dience which watched the struggle on the 
East Campus athletic field.

TRACK 



Captain Bob Montfort 



Duke University's proximity of locality to the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina was its greatest handicap during 
the 1939-40 track season. Nineteen hundred thirty-nine 
was not Duke's year in track, although individual per- 
% formers turned in enviable records. The Devils wound 
up the season with a record of two triumphs and an equal 
number of defeats in dual meets added to second place — 
to Carolina in each instance — in three invitation meets. 
Outstanding performers for the Blue Devil cindermen 
in the spring season were Captain Hubert Reavis, who 
graduated with a trail of glory behind him ; Don Kinzle, ace hurdler who was handicapped by 
illness through much of the season ; Bob Montfort, skyrocketing pole vaulter ; Harold Johnson, 
middle-distance star; Harry Sullivan, javelin hurler ; Bud Willmot, high-jumper; and J. "Dippy" 
Nania, strong-man propeller of the discus and shot-put. 

On April 5 the Duke stadium was the scene of the Devils' first clash of the year on the cinder- 
paths, and, after a hard-fought meet, an invading Princeton Tiger team emerged triumphant by 
a decisive 73-53 count. Surprise of the meet was Dick Files' first place in the 120-yard high- 
hurdles. Captain Reavis started his victory trail with a first in the 220-yard low hurdles and sec- 
ond place in the 100-yard dash. Other point-accumulaters were Ralph Jones, first in the z i mile 
run, and Harry Sullivan, beginning his string of firsts in hurling the javelin. 



279 



Carolina began its series of individual and competitive victories over the beleagured Blue Devils 
in the second dual meet of the year, submerging the arch-rivals, 78-53. Brightest light of the after- 
noon was Captain Reavis who had a field day, netting 1 3 points to be high scorer of the meet, 
with two firsts and two seconds. Bill Corpening led the victors with two firsts and a second. "Dip- 
py" Nania took both the discus and shot-put, while Montfort accounted for the vault and Sullivan 
for the javelin. 

Next activity for the Devils came in the Penn Relays and the North Carolina A. A. U. meet at 
Chapel Hill. At Philadelphia Hubert Reavis gained his greatest triumph of the year by taking 
first place in the finals of the 400-meter hurdle event. In the A. A. U. meet Carolina was first in 
point-accumulation with 95, while the Blue Devil entrants, missing the presence of Reavis, Kinzle, 
and Sullivan, were a poor second with 38. Harold Johnson swept to triumph in a brilliant 440- 
yard run, while Willmot took the high jump. 

An invasion of the lair of the Davidson Wildcats provided the Dukes an opportunity for their 
first triumph of the year, as they mopped up the impotent 'Cats to the tune of 88-38. 

The Devils followed up with their second successive victory in a dual meet, nosing out the Middies 
at Annapolis, 65-61. With Don Kinzle back in form to take first in the high hurdles and second 
in the broad jump, the trio of Reavis, Kinzle, and Nania clutched the victory from the grasping 
cleats of the Middies.

Nania again took a double victory in the weight events, while Captain Reavis closed his inter- 
collegiate career brilliantly with victories in the ioo- and 220-yard dashes, the low hurdles and a 
close second to teammate Kinzle in the high hurdles. 

The final action of the Spring season came in the Southern conference meet in which the Devils 
again finished second to the rampaging Carolinians with 43 points to the victors' 65. Reavis 
took first in the 220-yard low hurdles as usual. Montfort, Captain-elect for 1940 soared to his best 
mark of the season in capturing the Conference pole vault title, and Harry Sullivan climaxed a 
year of consistent triumph with the javelin crown. Nania took seconds in discus and shot, while 
Kinzle finished second in the 120-yard high hurdles. 

In the annual indoor Southern conference meet at Chapel Hill in February of this year, the Tar 
Heels again walked away with the honors taking first by virtue of 55 points. Duke was third, be- 
hind Maryland, with 24 points. Duke's hopes rested in the hands of a number of brilliant soph- 
omore prospects, but the team sorely showed the loss of Reavis, Johnson, Kinzle, and Sullivan, 
whose outstanding work was the backbone of Duke's success in 1939. Sophomore shot-put slinger, 
Steve Lach, in his first throw of the afternoon smashed the Conference record in this event to take 
that championship. 

Defending champion of the pole vault, Captain Bob Montfort and sophomore Bob Chambers 
tied Carolina's McLeod for first in the vault, while Willmot placed second and Moyer third on the

The 1939 edition of Duke University's 
baseball representatives continued down 
the glory trail for Coach Jack Coombs 
with a remarkable record of twenty-two 
victories stacked against two defeats, to 
retain both the State and Southern Con- 
ference championships and to make an estimable bid for any 
mythical national championship. The team batting per- 
centage was an exceedingly healthy .356. Copping individ- 
ual honors at bat was Frank Hoye with .473, followed by 
Tipton with .407. Bob Vickery led the pitchers with a 6-0 
record, while Jim Tompkins turned in six wins and one loss. 
In the opening engagement, the Devils broke all previous 
Duke scoring records by blasting out a 33-1 slaughter of

Springfield. Carl Pierce led the 32-hit attack with two home runs. 

The Devils continued to rampage against Colby, submerging 
the invaders 26-8. Batting honors were shared by Tipton with 
a home-run and Gaddy with five hits. Vickery, Kerr, and Tom- 
kins cooperated for the best mound performance of the year as 
Michigan State was set back with three hits, 3-0. 

Harvard was the next invading team to be sent Northward, aft- 
er bowing 12-10 due to some potent relief pitching by Tompkins. 

Major league competition proved too much for the Devils as 
the centennial celebrations of baseball and Duke were coordi- 
nately observed at the occasion of the Duke-Philadelphia scrap. 
An overflow crowd watched the invaders overpower Duke 19-2. 

Dave Smith and Chubby Dean collaborated to hold the Dukes 
to six hits. Duke resumed its winning against Davidson, 16-10, 
in a 14-hit attack featured by Pierce's round-tripper. 

In a two-day series, the Devils knocked off the invading Pitt 
Panthers 13-6 and 19-3. In the second game, McGrory became 
the first Duke hurler to go the route, as he set Pitt back with eight 
bingles. 

The Devils pulled a real surprise in the next game by not only 
defeating the highly-rated Demon Deacons of Wake Forest, but 
also knocking star hurler Rae Scarborough out of the box under 
a barrage of 14 runs and 12 hits. Home-runs by Tipton and 
Vickery featured the attack. Vickery set the Deacs down with 
five runs yielding eight hits.

Wake Forest southpaw, was bested at Coombs Park as the Deacs lost, 6-5, in eleven in- 
nings in the next encounter. 

Twenty-eight Duke hits boomed over Coombs Park a few days later 
TvVPIlfl/" Piofif Mlfc as the Devils took Davidson into camp in both ends of a double-header,

The Devils opened their Northern invasion unsuccessfully by dropping their only inter- 
collegiate game of the year to Maryland in a ten-inning thriller, 9-8. The Devils had an 
8-4 lead until the Old Liners tallied four times in the last of the ninth to tie the score, and 
then went on to win in the tenth. 

Continuing Northward, the Dukes shaded Princeton, 5-3, as Vickery scattered 1 2 hits 
and Price banged out a triple and a homer. Army also fell, 5-3, on an eight-hit perform- 
ance by Tompkins. 

Next victim was a highly-touted St. Johns by a 12-4 trimming. Kerr as the winning 
pitcher yielding seven hits, while Captain Bergman led the 16-hit attack, batting in three

Navy guns with three hits in the last six frames, after relieving Tompkins. Duke garnered 
thirteen base knocks. 

Back on the home lot, State was handily polished, 10-1, behind some five-hit pitching 
by Vickery and home runs by Caddy and Tipton. 

The last three games of the season were all with Carolina's Tar Heels, deadly rivals of

the Coombsmen. In the opener of the series at Chapel Hill, the 
Tar Heels and the Devils played a see-saw game, with the Dukes 
finally pushing over the deciding tally in the eighth inning on 
Gaddy's single to win, 6-5. Vickery and Tompkins held the Tar 
Heels to nine hits, with Tompkins receiving credit for the victory. 

The scene shifted to Greensboro under the arc lights for the 
second battle, which proved to be the biggest slug-fest of the sea- 
son. Thirty-five pairs of cleats dug safely into home-plate, as the 
Devils out-slugged and out-clouted Carolina 21-14. It took a 
dramatic eleven-run outburst in the beginning of the eighth in- 
ning to overcome Carolina's 14-7 lead. 

The Devils defeated Carolina for the third straight time and ac- 
counted for their ninth consecutive triumph in the season's finale 
by turning back the Tar Heels, 12-4, behind Tompkins who suc- 
cessfully scattered 13 hits. Gaddy and Tipton fittingly finished 
their collegiate careers in a blaze of glory ; Gaddy knocked out 
five hits in five times at bat, and Tipton clouted out a 445-foot 
centerfield home-run, the third in the history of Duke baseball to 
clear the hedge.

Faced with the exceptionally long schedule of sixteen games, Coach Herschel Caldwell has been 
beset with many problems in the forming of an effective freshman baseball team for the 1940 
season. Principal foes to be met during the season are Wake Forest four times, Carolina, N. C. 
State, and Oak Ridge, each twice. 

Early spring practice sessions have given a fair indication of who will occupy the first-string 
berths on the yearling nine. Among the pitchers, Grove, Hessler, Garris, Booker, McGehee, Walk- 
er, and Seward appear to be the leading contenders for starting mound assignments, while the 
catching chores will probably fall to Romp. 

In the infield there has been a wealth of material. Reading from first to third, the probable 
inner cordon will consist of Kiely, Bond or Simonds, Kale, and Janiga. In the outfield there are 
four leading aspirants for garden roles, Rosen, Rothbaum, Ulrich, and Porritt. 

It is expected, however, that with the extremely long schedule and the many games that will 
occur on successive days, many more men than those mentioned above will see action.

The Woman's Athletic Association offers a system on "East" which fulfills the 
same purpose as the intramural program on "West." This purpose is to offer 
recreation rather than to fill requirements of the Physical Education Depart- 
ment. The aims of the association are to promote athletics in a rational and 
wholesome way, to establish educational leadership, and to build up public 
support of athletics. 

The Athletic Association's 300 members are directed by a board of twenty

girls.

directs the annual tournaments and field days. A banquet is given for the mem- 
bers at the end of the year at which time awards are given to those who have 
earned the largest number of points in athletic participation. 

The first big event this year was the second annual golf tournament at Hill- 
andale. Kay Strikol was winner and Lee Johnson runner-up in the first flight. 
In the second flight Elizabeth Ramsey defeated Helen Jackson. For one after- 
noon in the fall Miss Helen Dettwieler was on the campus for an exhibition 
match and to give the girls a few pointers in golf technique.

part. We are proud to have had three girls representing Duke elected 
to the all-state hockey team. Class teams were formed and after a series 
of games the finals were played off, and the Junior team was victorious. 

During the winter basketball is as popular on "East" as it is on "West." 
Everyone interested has an opportunity to play in the closely matched 
games. Early in the season a tournament is held with nurse, faculty, 
sorority, dormitory, and non-sorority teams competing for a silver cup 
awarded by the Woman's Athletic Association. Later the class teams 
compete in a series of games and the victor has its numerals inscribed on 
the Basketball Banner.

gest and most important event for riders is the attrac- 
tion of the Field Days in the spring and in the fall. In 
the fall the riding show is for competition in form and 
jumping. Competition was strong this fall, but the 
Freshman and Sophomore classes definitely outrode 
the upperclassmen. The jumping event improves each 
year, but this year the competition offered by fresh- 
men from hunting clubs throughout the country was 
too much for our local talent. The riders in the spring 
show are judged on ability in formation riding. Be- 
tween shows the girls ride for enjoyment on the trails 
through Duke Forest. Every girl in the riding classes 
remembers the steak roasts at Crow's Nest. 

Baseball is popular among many girls in the spring. 
Play begins in the middle of March and continues un- 
til the end of the semester when the tournament be- 
tween the class teams is held. These teams are under 
the managers appointed by the chairman of baseball. 
These managers supervise their teams, organize them, 
and get the members out for games. The climax 
of the baseball season comes when the two winning

teams oppose each other in tourna- 
ment play on the spring field day. 

In the fall and spring Archery is 
enjoyed at Duke. The season had 
hardly opened this fall when two 
girls represented Duke at play day 
in Chapel Hill. These girls were 
surprised to take first place in their 
divisions. Thus the season started 
with a bang. The girls soon com- 
peted for class teams, and on Field 
Day these teams met in opposition. 
The Juniors won by a close margin. 

Duke also entered a team in the

graphic Archery Tournament.

ors. 



The tennis season started in fine style in the fall when Emily Nassau 
won the Freshman tournament. With other freshman players competing 
it looks as though the matches between the classes this spring will be close. 

Annual Field Days are held in the fall and spring, when the finals of 
the various events are played. In the fall, Field Day ends competition 
of class teams in hockey, soccer, riding, volley ball, and swimming. The 
archery, track, tennis, and basketball seasons are brought to a close ; the 
finals of the tennis tournament are played off for class championships in 
May. 

This February the Woman's Athletic Association sponsored a Leap- 
Year Dance — the first on the campus — and because of its success, other 
activities of that kind are being planned. W. A. A. activities also include 
entertainment for the Freshmen at the "cabin" each fall, hikes, week- 
end parties, and open houses in the gym. 

At the end of each year, class numerals and "D's" are awarded by the 
Woman's Athletic Association. In giving awards a point system has been 
established which gives class numerals to girls in each class who have 
earned fifty points. These points are earned by entering the athletic

activities and either placing on a team or winning the event. A blue 
"D" goes to each often girls who have earned the most points through- 
out the year on the Woman's Campus. White sweaters with old English 
"D's" in blue are given to those seven senior girls with the highest num- 
ber of points. The class having the greatest number of points for the 
year has its numerals placed on a banner which is hung in the gymna- 
sium. 

W. A. A. has been fortunate to have at its head Nancy Craig, who has 
been ably assisted by Jean Snyder, Secretary ; Doris Colsh, Vice Presi- 
dent ; and Helen Gottlieb, Treasurer.

The W. A. A. is one of the most active or- 
ganizations on the East Campus, and serves as 
a group to sponsor extra-curricular activities 
in the line of Women's athletics. Every year 
it has grown in both strength and popularity, 
and more and more Co-eds are taking advan- 
tage of the extensive programs offered. The 
organization stands for good sportsmanship, 
succeeding in this purpose more every year. 
To the women and student instructresses who 
guide and encourage this invaluable quality 
we must pay all due respects. With the year 
coming to a close, we look forward to next 
year with high hopes of greater student inter- 
est and ever increasing popularity.

ACTIVITIES 



Activities have played an important part, as always, in this year at Duke. The Y. M. C. A. and 
Y. W. C. A. members arrived on the campus early to help the freshmen. By serving as general 
guides and advisors to the class of 1943, the "Y" members had an important part in Duke campus 
life. They published many bulletins and announcements to help the freshmen and answer their 
many questions. 

The two "Y's" carried on their work all year, giving social functions and backing various stu- 

294 





dent projects. Students who desired other forms ot work 
entered Dramatics, Publications or musical organiza- 
tions. 

This year found an increased interest in the Chanti- 
cleer, the Chronicle, the Duke V Duchess, and the Archive. 
Each of these publications offered a different kind of 
journalistic work. 

There are many extra-curricular activities offered in 
the field of music. The Men's and Women's Glee Clubs, 
the Choir, the Band, the Symphony Orchestra, and the 
Music Study Club encouraged interest and improve- 
ment in music among the students. 

For those interested in Dramatics, Mr. West's Duke 
Players and courses in dramatics offered stage and act- 
ing experience. 

Students at Duke receive wonderful advantages and 
opportunities by the music departments of the Univer- 
sity ; the Band, Symphony Orchestra, Glee Clubs, and 
Choir all offer the student the possibility to express his 
talents for the worthy cause of music and to gain that 
satisfaction which only music can render. Also, numer- 
ous concerts by individual artists, and various sympho- 
nies are given throughout the year for the mutual benefit 
of the University community and students. And for the 
lovers of lighter music, dance bands are located on both 




campuses offering popular music. Altogether Duke 
enjoys exceptional talent and looks forward to great 
achievement in all musical concepts.

sons for his candidacy. Shortly afterward each can- 
didate appears before the publications board and gives 
a three minute talk on his qualifications. Then the 
elections are held and the results announced. 

The board is composed of three members from the 
University staff and two members from the alumni 
office, appointed by the President of the University, 
six men from the Junior and Senior classes of the 
Men's college, and four women from the Junior and 
Senior classes of the Women's college, all of which 
are elected by the students. The editors and business 
managers of the five student publications are honorary 
members of the board, but they do not have the power 
to vote. However, they play a major role, introduc- 
ing many topics for discussion and vote, furnishing 
the contact between the administration and the nu- 
merous staffs, and giving information for the coor- 
dination of the student publications. 

The official members of the board from the staff of 
the University are Mr. Charles E. Jordan, Chairman, 
Dr. Charles E. Ward, Vice Chairman ; Dean Wanna- 
maker, Mr. Dwire, and Mr. C. B. Markham. The 
official student members are Maxine Chambers, Helen 
Knight, Edwina Sundholm, Dixie Swaren, E. S. Del- 
aney, Andrew Ducker, Walter Erich, Duncan Gray, 
Steve Lawrence, and Robert Lineberger. 



The publications by the stu- 
dents of Duke University are 
under the control of the pub- 
lications board. Since it was 
founded in 1924, the board has 
elected the editors and busi- 
ness managers of the Chanti- 
cleer, Chronicle, Archive, and 
Duke 're 3 Duchess, and has al- 
lotted funds for these publica- 
tions. The purposes of the 
board have been to protect 
the student body from profi- 
teering on the part of student 
publications, and to elect com- 
petent editors and business 
managers. 

The election of the editors 
and business managers takes 
place the second week in May. 
Preceding the election each 
candidate for office must sub- 
mit his application, giving rea-

ALL-AMERICAN 
CHANTICLEER 



All-American again! For the third con- 
secutive year the Chanticleer has dis- 
tinguished itself among thousands of 
annuals throughout the country, by re- 
ceiving All-American rating from the 
National Collegiate Press Association. 
This award is an honor given to a few de- 
serving yearbooks, and it is a real credit 
to the editor, Hill Hudson, the members 
of the 1939 staff, and Duke University. 
The yearbooks which are submitted 
are classified by the editors' instructions 
according to type and enrollment of the 
school. The standards for the books in 
each group are set by the accomplish- 
ments of the average books in the group.

We, the members of the 1940 staff, realize 



that the rating received by last year's annual 
cannot be surpassed. It is our earnest hope, 
however, that this, the 1940 Chanticleer, 
shows evidence of an equal amount of plan-

CHAMICLEER EDITORIAL 



"The 1940 Chanticleer — presented by the stu- 
dent body of Duke University." This statement 
we like to feel is true, for no history could be com- 
plete if it contained only the ideas and opinions 
of one student or one group of students. One 
hundred students from every class and organiza- 
tion on the campus have been active members of 
the staff that produced this book, and through 
their writings and suggestions each has contrib- 
uted what he thought to be the significant things 
accomplished by the various organizations during 
the course of the year. 

Our purpose has not been to record the events 
of past years — preceding Chanticleers have done 
that well. Our aim has been to present this year 
in both print and picture so that each student will 
feel that he possesses a record that shows Duke as 
it really is ; and help others, into whose hands this 
book may fall, to feel, as we feel, that to be a 
member of this university community is a real 
privilege.

CHANTICLEER 
BUSINESS 



The Business Staff this year has accomplished an 
enormous task. It has always been a difficult job 
to obtain advertisements to sustain the financial end 
of an annual and also a painful task to carry out col- 
lections of the various student fees. This year the 
task was increased when our budget was decreased 
by more than 15 per cent. However, the entire 
staff cooperated magnificently and through their 
untiring efforts a workable budget was formed. 

Under the guidance of the Business Manager, the assistance of the Co-ed Business Manager, 
Annajane Boyd, and Office Manager Jim Eddy, the year's work has moved smoothly and efficiently. 
Being fortunate to have five willing and able Juniors on the staff has aided tremendously in getting 
work done ahead of time. Photographing of the students reached a new high when over 98 per 
cent of the student body had their pictures taken. 

A new system of advertising soliciting was instituted which proved to be highly successful. Un- 
der the guidance of the assistant manager, Connie Kelly, the amount of advertising gotten this 
year exceeded any previous year in both volume and income. With the wrinkles ironed out of 
this new system and the advantage of an earlier start, next year's staff should produce an adver- 
tising section second to none and unique among yearbooks.

One of the main tasks of any annual staff 
is to see that the majority of the students are 
pleased with the outcome of the Staff's en- 
deavors. If this is done, then that is all we 
may ask. This year's staff moves on and 
passes the worries and problems over to 
younger blood hoping that they, too, may 
meet with the success that has been ours.

CHRONICLE 
EDITORIAL 



This year the Chronicle has looked 
upon the Duke campus as a little 
city, replete with every facility 
that is necessary for a citizenry 
with a common purpose. We 
have liked to think that our pa- 
per has edited the news of Duke 
city and shared in its purpose by 
serving the desire of an institu- 
tion to tell about itself. 

Editorially, it has been our pol- 
icy to think in terms of the best 
interests of the University. Real- 
izing that it is a prevailing tend- 
ency of newspaper editors to re- 
sort to sensation and criticism in 
an effort to be in the spotlight, 
we have tried to present a bal- 
anced and sincere appraisal of 
problems that seemed to us to 
deserve comment. 



Campus publications can, and often have, run up 
bills in misrepresentation of Duke University, the 
damages being paid only after years of rebuilding 
what has been torn down. Probably the most un- 
fortunate misrepresentation of this school is "coun- 
try club" label. To those who know Duke this is 
a ridiculous misnomer. Publications which go out 
to the public can either support or break down this 
popular point of view. 

Structurally, the Chronicle editorial staff was built 
up with an eye toward distributing the various tasks 
to the several specialists on the staff, and through- 
out the year each particular duty — such as head 
writing, copy reading, and rewrite work — was in 
the hands of one particular man. Later, when pub- 
lications elections neared, men who appeared to be 
possible editorial staff leaders for next year were 
assigned to every job, thus enlarging their experi- 
ence. 

But the emphasis was always on the position of 
the newspaper in reference to the University. What 
the University did, the Chronicle attempted to record 
in unbiased terms. There was no emphasis on strik- 
ing journalism, only a stress on what really was 
news. 

It is our hope that future editors will take the 
cause of the University to heart, never shutting their 
eyes to its limitations, but always remembering that 
while Duke is still cutting first teeth, it is offering 
students as much education per dollar as any other 
institution in the country, and is one of the fastest 
growing universities in educational history.

CHRONICLE 
BUSINESS 




There have been several changes in the 
organization and operation of the busi- 
ness of the Chronicle. The circulation 
managers divided the work, Tom 
Fletcher looking after the mailing list, 
Bob Forman handling campus circula- 
tion. This has led to greater efficiency 
in both divisions — there being an almost 
total absence of complaint for the first 
time in years. Mary Whyte has done an 
excellent job in handling East Campus 
circulation. 





Manager Travers G. Brown 



Due to the increasing vigilence of the office 
manager, Dick Johantgen, there has been a 
much smaller loss through bad debts than ever 
before. His careful checking of unpaid ac- 
counts from past years, as well as steady work 
through the present year, has prevented our 
handling bad accounts. His constant checking 
of expenditures has enabled us to reduce costs 



The job of circulation 



to the lowest point since the de- 
pression. 

The most important division of 
the business staff is the advertis- 
ing department. George Bigham 
and Pen Davis have continued 
the good work started in earlier 
years. Perhaps the best of the 
new members of the staff are 
Andy Ducker and Bill Smith, 
who have proven themselves in- 
dispensable. Bob Puder, Polly 
Warner, Ed Schubrick, Dan 
Moseley and Harvey are also de- 
serving of great credit for their 
part in the paper's financial suc- 
cess. 
In addition to her work on the advertising 
staff, Polly Warner has efficiently handled one 
of the most extensive subscription solicitation 
programs in the history of the paper.

ARCHIVE 



Repressing our chronic modesty for 
the time being, we of the editorial 
staff of the Archive find it proper to 
proclaim the season 1939- 1940 a 
success. 

Outwardly, the year was un- 
eventful except for the rather noisy 
celebration of the magazine's 50th 
anniversary which came as a sur- 
prise to those of us who knew that 
the Archive was in its fifty-third year. 

Within the staff reigned purest 
harmony; ie., a beautiful single- 
ness of purpose due mainly to the 
fact that the staff members were all 
unwilling to work. The one excep- 
tion was George Zabriskie, the poet 
with the golden locks and our chief 
henchman in the fight against the 
philistines. 

Virginia Hodges, our Co-ed ed- 



itor, fulfilled a purpose more ornamental than prac- 
tical. Buck Koenig had intermittent periods of 
activity. Jim Halsema served faithfully as contrib- 
utor and as printer's devil. Paul Ader remained 
quietly efficient. Marie Coma was responsible for 
the manv renovations and innovations which give 
the Archive office the sumptuous elegance of a funeral 
parlor. Bill Vinson was merely cynical. 

This year, by conducting a series of monthly meet- 
ings of the entire business staff solely for the pur- 
pose of discussing advertising and circulation prob- 
lems, a trained and efficient group has been de- 
veloped to handle the financial problems of the 
Archive. Under the skillful guidance of Bill Boedd- 
ner and his associates, Wright Dixon, Tony Baca, 
and Virginia Demming, the advertising section of 
the magazine has become increasingly interesting 
and decorative. Willis Smith, circulation manager, 
has attempted to secure complete coverage of the 
student body by beginning delivery of the Archive 
to students living in Durham in addition to those 
living on the campus. The Co-ed staff, headed by 
Jean Bailey, has assisted ably throughout the year. 
Without their cooperation, a successful Archive would 
have been impossible. 

The Fiftieth Anniversary issue, published in 
March, opened new and unusual fields of oppor- 
tunity for the business staff. Thirty-five editors 
and business managers of past years, contacted by 
Mildred Bergen, made contributions in various 
ways. The entire staff is to be congratulated for 
the manner in which they handled the increased 
amount of work necessary to complete this enlarged 
edition.

DUKE W DUCHESS 

As the Duke V Duchess nears the end of its 
second year as an official Duke publica- 
tion, we should like to pause for a moment 
for a retrospective glance over the past few 
months. 

When the official stamp of the Univer- 
sity and the Publications Board was put 
on it, the Duke V Duchess staff felt imme- 
diately its burden toward living up to the

traditions of the Duke publications. This year we, 
too, have felt this burden and have tried to be worthy 
of the trust put in us. The editorial policy has con- 
tinued unchanged in some respects, for we have main- 
tained a policy of wise censorship which will allow a 
maximum of freedom to a magazine representative of 
Duke University. Its staff has continued to be chosen 
and governed with strict regard for ability and ambi- 
tion. We have, however, instituted a great change of 
policy : Instead of editing a magazine dedicated 
wholly to humor, we have attempted to combine the 
humor with timely comments on Duke campus life 
and activities. 

The staff is divided into two major units, editorial 
and business. This year for the first time a co-ed, 
Maxine Chambers, is editor. In her work she has 
been ably assisted by Ed Bunce, Managing Editor. 
Jane Grant, Richard Conlin, Hal Piatt, and Al Bragg 
have worked diligently on the editorial staff. Art 
Stanwood, Art Editor, has also cooperated with the 
editorial staff. The work of the business staff has been 
organized and conducted by Robert Rice, Business 
Manager. Through his endeavors and those of Ted 
Robinson, Assistant Business Manager, the magazine 
has been able to achieve financial stability.

Y. M. C. A. 



Tim Brinn 

President 



Another year of progress for the Young Men's Christian 
Association goes down in the records of Duke Univer- 
sity. The Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, composed of eight sen- 
iors and seven juniors and the heads of the Freshman 
and Sophomore Councils, has enlarged and extended its 
activities during this school year. 

The beginning of Freshman Week in September saw the members of the Cabinet, fifteen selected 
men from the Sophomore Council, and members of B. O. S. aiding in the orientation of the fresh- 
men. This year for the first time the Freshman Advisory Council, which had its beginning in the 
Y. M. C. A. two years ago, functioned as a separate organization with its chairman as a Cabinet 
member. 

Social activities were high-lighted by open houses, smokers, and cabin parties. Campus orches- 
tras furnish the music for the open-house dances. 

Dad's Day, now in its sixth year as an annual event at Duke, saw 350 fathers of Duke students 

Y on the campus with their sons for a week-end. During this time they were en- 

7 / tertained by the Duke-Wake Forest football game and a "get-together" banquet. 

/ / For Religious Emphasis Week, which is also sponsored by the "Y," we were 

indeed fortunate to secure the services of Dr. Daniel A. Poling, pastor of the 
Baptist Temple in Philadelphia, as guest preacher. The Cabinet is indebted to 
the Directors of Religious Activities for their valuable advice and assistance 
which were constantly in demand and just as constantly given. 



310 





Y. W. C. A. 



For the past twenty-two years the Y. W. C. A. has been an in- 
tegral part of the Woman's College. There are few activities 
in which the "Y" does not participate, and evidences of "Y" 
work are usually visible on the bulletin boards and in the Chron- 
icle. The "Y" helps with the orientation of new girls and con- 
tinues with the freshman picnics and open houses, Dad : s Day 
and the "Y" Christmas Fair. 
The Worship Committee assisted in the presentation of Vesper and Lenten services, as well as 
the Easter Sunrise Service. 

The Social Service carried on its work as usual, with the addition of new sub-committees. This 
year the committee has rendered able assistance to the community through Thanksgiving baskets ; 
clothes collection for the poor ; and work in the Nursery School, Duke and Watts Hospitals, Wright's 
Refuge, Girl Scouts, and numerous charitable organizations. 

The entire purpose of the "Y", however, is not that of doing for others. It is also our desire to 
enrich our own lives through learning to think for ourselves. There are discussion groups on such 
problems as Labor, Race Relations, International Relations, 
and Religion. The general "Y" meetings have as their aim 
this purpose, as well as the entertainment of our large member- 
ship. For these programs, in which the entire association par- 
ticipates, we have secured the cooperation of faculty members 
and others who give us the benefit of their wide experience. 
The fact that the "Y" has become an established part of cam- 
pus activities is proof enough that it serves a real purpose.

The Sophomore "Y" Council was one of 
the first student organizations to take part 
in campus activities this year. In cooper- 
ation with the "Y" Cabinet and Beta 
Omega Sigma, twenty members of the 
Sophomore Council returned early in or- 
der to take an active part in Freshman 
Week. These men worked under the or- 
ders of President Brinn and were assigned 
to the various duties of proctoring exams, 
acting as guides, and aiding in registration. 

During the year meetings were held 
every Wednesday night. Cabinet mem- 
bers were invited to come to the first meet- 
ings and give an outline of the work of 
their respective committees. The Coun- 
cil was then organized into various com- 
mittees, and under this arrangement pro- 
ceeded to take over the prefects of last 
year's Council. 

For the first few months the entire Coun- 
cil aided the Finance Committee in its 
laborious task of collecting pledges and 
soliciting upperclassmen memberships. 
Later it cooperated with the "Y" Cabinet 
in making Duke Dad's Day the success 
that it was. In accordance with its usual 
program, the Council met several times 
during the year in joint meeting with the 
Sophomore Commission of the East Cam- 
pus. 

The purpose of the Sophomore "Y" 
Council has been to train sophomore stu- 
dents in the business and projects of the 
Y. M. C. A. Cabinet. By following plans

and projects of their own, and by helping 
members of the cabinet, the Sophomores 
have learned to do "Y" work. The mem- 
bers of the cabinet are selected from the 
Sophomore "Y" Council which acts more 
or less as a training school for possible 
cabinet members.

President 



Early in the first semester, the Y. M. G. A. Cabinet extended to 
all freshmen who were interested in an organization which would 
stimulate Christian fellowship on the campus the opportunity to 
join the Freshman "Y" Council. Many freshmen became mem- 
bers, and the council grew larger than ever before. Following precedents set by various councils, 
this year's council sponsored a broad and varied program. 

The council not only provided introductory training for future cabinet members, but also car- 
ried on many activities essential for the adjustment of freshmen to college life. Information re- 
garding all religious organizations was given to every council member, and joining of the varied 
religious groups was encouraged by the council. Joint meetings were held with the other "Y" 
groups to familiarize the freshmen with the campus leaders and the extensive organization of the 
Y. M. C. A. 

This year the council lacked neither spirit nor originality. The campus was decorated for Christ- 
mas following the precedent set by last year's council. Picnics were held to acquaint the freshmen 
with the students of the East. A "know your college" quiz was sponsored to familiarize the council 
with points of interest on the campus as professors and coaches enlightened the council on many 
puzzling questions in brief talks at the weekly meetings. Such educational, religious, and social 
functions were an important part of the council members freshman year.

MEN'S FRESHMEN 
ADVISORY COUNCIL 




Robert Rice 
Chairman 



The Freshman Advisory Council was organized in the fall of 1937 
to provide adequate contacts between freshmen and upperclass- 
men, and, primarily to assist freshmen in their first year at Duke 
to become thoroughly orientated to the life and ways of Trinity 
College and Duke. 

The Council, under the chairmanship of Bob Rice, this year 
was expanded to include in its personnel ninety Duke undergrad- 
uates, chosen on the basis of their scholastic ability, campus stand- 
ing, and capabilities for adequately aiding freshmen during their 
first year at Duke. 

The Program of the Council began the latter part of Freshman 
Week. Data and information on each freshman was collected 

throughout the year, and reports, compiled with the assistance of Dr. K. B. Watson, were filled 
out by the Adviser after each contact with the freshman and a tutoring program was undertaken 
with the aid of Phi Eta Sigma, sophomore scholarship fraternity, to help freshmen who were de- 
ficient in their work. 

To enumerate further details of the work carried on by the Council would be a task too great 
for this article. It can only be said that at all times the Council had available adequate and com- 
plete information concerning the activities and problems of each member of the freshman class, 
so that the Advisers might render material assistance to their individual advisees. 

The Council was jointly aided and supervised in its activities by the Y. M. C. A., the Men's 
Student Government Association, and the Men's Pan-Hellenic Council, and is grateful to these 
organizations for their material aid in carrying out the ideals and aims of the Council. 

The Council is also indebted to the Directors of Student Religious Activities, Mr. Fred Cleave- 
land and Mr. Denny Williams for their able assistance and to Dr. James Truesdale, head of the 
housemasters, and Dean Alan K. Manchester for their understanding and cooperation with the 
Council.

WOMEN'S FRESHMEN 
AND TRANSFER ADVISERS 



To meet the growing importance of Orientation Week, the small 
group of girls originally chosen as freshman advisers has increased 
rapidly in number. 

Advisers are chosen for their quality of character, leadership, and 
interest in the work which is required of them. The efficiency and 
success of the Council is indicated by the important place that the 
organization now holds on the campus. The advisers not only help 
the Woman's College Staff during Freshman Week, but continue 
their work throughout the entire first semester. They attempt from 
the very beginning to help freshmen with the problems that result 
from the abrupt transition from high school to college, and to make 
each freshman feel that Duke is her home and that she is an integral 
part of the college community. The adviser's most important duty 
is to acquaint the freshman with the details of college life, helping 
her to adjust herself and solve her own problems in a manner worthy 
of an independent college woman. 

The Freshman Advisory Council is indebted to Mrs. Elizabeth 
Anderson Persons and to the Freshman Office for their invaluable 
cooperation and assistance. Active work with the freshman has given the advisers an opportunity 
to make new friends, and has further proved the worth and value of the Women's Freshman Ad- 
visory Council on the Duke Campus.

STUDENT TORUM COMMITTEE 




The Student Forum Committee was established in the spring of 
1934 as a sub-committee of the Woman's Student Council. The 
Council brings distinguished and entertaining speakers to the 
Woman's College, gives an opportunity to interested students to 
work in cultural fields, and sponsors open forums for the purpose 
of discussing campus problems. 

Members are selected from the rising senior class by the Coun- 
cil and the retiring Forum Committee with Mrs. Z. B. Vance, 
acting as Forum Adviser. The funds for the lectures are obtained 
from the Student Government fees of the "Woman's College. Each 
girl receives a season ticket, but the Committee charges admission 
to the general public in order to help defray the cost. 

This year the Student Forum has presented an unusually interesting program, consisting of four 
widely known lecturers and entertainers. Early in the fall Hanya Holm and her group of dancers 
returned to the campus to give another thrilling exhibition of the modern dance. For their winter 
program the Committee presented Edgar Wind, who gave a series of lectures on Michelangelo ; 
and Samuel Gaillard Stoney, who spoke on Charleston as a remnant of the eighteenth century. 
The Forum presented for its spring and final program Vera Brittain, who spoke on "Woman's 
Place in This Changing World."

BUM PLAYERS 



PThe curtain rings down for the last time on the 1939-40 
"W season of the Duke Players. Our Town, the Pulitzer por- 

^^^ M f-T'v^ tla '' of American life, Spring Dance, a dramatist's eyeview 

^ of college, Winterset, a poetic interpretation of life in the 

slums, and The Pursuit of Happiness, tribute to an old 
custom, bundling, have passed over the boards. The 
back-stage dramas of missing props, falling flats, a cigar 
hand-out, after-play parties, and lost costumes, have 
faded into memories that linger in the expectant pause 
before any curtain goes up. Eight players take their 
final curtain call on the Duke boards before they leave 
for another stage. 
Ruth Auser, who in two years, has filled six roles to admiration, as housekeeper in Stage Door 
and Night Must Fall, Mrs. Rimplegar in Three Cornered Moon, the village gossip, Mrs. Soames, of 
Our Town, the reliable Kate in Spring Dance, and the applewoman in Winterset, intends to spend 
time while waiting the chance to fill Edna Mae Oliver's buskins either pounding the pavement or 
a typewriter. Her mask of Theta Alpha Phi surely wears a grin, for Ruth has consistently turned 
in excellent comic performances. 

Edna Joyner, prop mistress for three years and recording secretary for the Players this year, be- 
longs among the unsung heroines of the stage. Her Theta Alpha Phi pin represents recognition 
of hard work well done. 

Versatile Jerry Morehead, vice president of Duke Players this year, make-up and lighting chair- 
man for two years, the lead of Stage Door and Spring Dance is leaving for New York, not to display 
her Theta Alpha Phi pin, but to learn to wield a scalpel at the Columbia School of Medicine. 




Walter Erich 

President

Walt Erich, president and house manager, will no longer flash his cheerful smile and hand the 
star her flowers at curtain calls. He, too, wears the Theta Alpha Phi mask. 

Gus Forsell, general factotum and faithful refuge when a play seems about to go wrong, hopes 
to be a faculty dramatic adviser wherever he decides to teach "math." Gus has been a chief main 
stay during his entire four years. He served on the business staff the entire time, was a capable 
manager for two years, directed and announced radio plays, worked on props, and is a member 
of Theta Alpha Phi. 

Herb Jaffey, perhaps the most promising of all the players, is planning to take literally the ad- 
vice of "Go West, young man." His dreams of being a great screen director are well-founded on 
good, hard practical experience. He can see the actor's point of view since he played, and played 
well, Kimo in Petticoat Fever, the German prisoner of Journey' 's End, Kenneth in Three Cornered Moon, 
the radical in Winterset, doubled in bit-parts in After Dark and Our Town, and lived Lippincott in 
Spring Dance. He proved his directing ability as co-director of Our Town and Winterset. 

Dugald Neill, collector of dialects par excellence, is going to try to apply dramatics to the business 
world or to go into radio work. As Captain Hardy of Journey' 's End, Editor Webb of Our Town, 
and Trock in Winterset, Doug has consistently made a difficult role a brilliant one. He has also 
enlivened radio broadcasts and made recordings for radio advertisements. 

With Leigh Diamond graduating, the Players are left an orphan ; for Leigh is known as an ideal 
papa. He played convincingly the role of father in Petrified Forest, Stage Door, and Our Town. He 
worked on the radio, and true to his chief talent, wrote several scripts. 

Betty Pardo is leaving her post as mistress of the wardrobe to be mistress of her own home.

The fourth annual nation - wide broadcast, the fourth annual 
Northern trip featuring an alumni concert in New York City, 
and the longest trip in Duke Glee Club history — that was the 
story of the Trinity College male singing group this year. 

More than 10,000 people heard the thirty-six varsity singers as 
they travelled through six states and the District of Columbia on 
a tour of twelve concerts. Two people were chiefly responsible 
for the success of the trip. One was J. Foster Barnes, director of 
the singers ; and the other was Bruce Boorman, a junior and busi- 
ness manager of the Club. 

Ever since the early days of old Trinity, the male singing group 
has been noted for its renditions of Negro spiritual songs. This 
year was no exception. "Bishop"' Barnes has included several of 
these ballads of the colored people on every program since he as- 
sumed directorship thirteen seasons ago. 

Leading the concert series was a nation-wide broadcast from 
New York City on April 7, and the annual alumni concert on 
April 8. Concerts were also given in Greensboro ; Farmville, Vir- 
ginia ; Fredericksburg, Virginia ; Washington, D. C. ; Frederick, 
Maryland ; Cumberland, Maryland ; Front Royal, Virginia ; 
Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania ; Orange, New Jersey ; and Durham. 

Four seniors concluded their fourth consecutive year with the 
organization, and these, with graduate-student J. P. Waggoner, 
are the only ones to have sung on all four New York trips. They 
are Vernon Dibeler, Sam Enfield, John Lyle, and Whitby K. 
Maddern. 



MEN'S GLEE CLUB 




320 



The one hundred and sixty members of the Woman's College 
Glee Club form the largest Duke campus organization wherein 
every member is active. Under the direction of the gifted leader, 
Mrs. J. Foster Barnes, it has grown into one of the finest women's 
choirs in the South, and willingly lends its services to various cam- 
pus occasions. Members of the Glee Club are frequently in evi- 
dence at our Sunday evening "community sings," either as lead- 
ers or featured soloists. In collaboration with the Men's Glee 
Club, this year the Woman's Glee Club presented two perform- 
ances of Handel's immortal "Messiah," accompanied by the 
Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. 

For several years the members of the organization have nour- 
ished a desire to appear in concert, and this spring the dream 
became a reality. On April 12, the Woman's College Glee Club 
presented a concert in Page Auditorium, assisted by the Univer- 
sity Symphony Orchestra and the Modern Dance Group. With 
this extensive program, the desire was fulfilled to present to the 
student body a variety of entertainment that included classical, 
secular, and religious songs. 

Apart from the cultural side of this organization, the Glee Club 
also carries on an active social program. Its largest social func- 
tion is the annual dance, given each fall in Memorial Gymnasium 
in honor of the new members. In addition, Mr. and Mrs. Barnes 
hold an open house each Sunday night to which all members are 
welcome to come to sing and visit.

UUM INSTRUMENTAL 



THE ASSOCIATION 

This marks the fourth year of the formation of the Duke Instru- 
mental Music Association which combined the Band and Sym- 
phony Orchestra for the purpose of facilitating better organiza- 
tion, efficiency, and concentration of instrumentation. 

The manager, who heads the Association, is chosen by the In- 
strumental Music Board. Evan Thompson, who so ably occupied 
this position during the present year, proved his ability as super- 
visor over the various activities, trips and concerts of the Associa- 
tion. 

BAND 

The University Band has enjoyed the satisfaction of a most suc- 
cessful year. In the fall, in collaboration with the football season, 
the military unit of ninety members has distinguished itself as one 
of the outstanding college bands of the South. Dressed in West 
Point uniforms, and led by brilliant drum-majors in their color- 
ful maneuvers and formations, the band has become an integral 
part of every football game, delighting thousands with its music 
and novelties. In addition to all home games, it accompanied 
the team to Pittsburgh, Virginia Military Academy, and P_aleigh 
where very favorable comments were made as a result of the bril- 
liant performances. 

With the closing of the football season a sixty-piece concert 
band was chosen which immediately began diligent practice for 
the four successful performances given in Page Auditorium, De-

cember 15 and 16. The concert band also participated in May 
Day festivities and alternated in a series of Sunday afternoon con- 
certs between the Memorial Gardens and East Campus. It is 
generally known that the great improvement and marked success 
which the band has shown during the last few years is largely due 
to the never-tiring efforts of our deserving director, Mr. Robert 
Fearing. 

Not only is the Duke Band one of the most important extra- 
curricular activities of the campus, but it also provides its mem- 
bers with an additional musical knowledge and ability. Its pur- 
poses are to engender a greater appreciation for music as a worthy 
pursuit and hobby, and to foster a better understanding and sat- 
isfaction which only music can render. 

THE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA 

This year, by careful selection, the orchestra has been reduced to 
a little symphony composed of talented musicians representing 
Trinity College, The Woman's College, Faculty and Durham. 
A concert was given the week of April 15 during which Harold 
Morris was guest soloist. Part of the program consisted of Beeth- 
oven (Emperor Concerto). 

The Symphony has been highly successful in its presentations 
during the last two years, especially as an accompaniment to the 
Gilbert and Sullivan light operas. This talented group, under the 
excellent leadership of Robert Fearing, has offered the community 
the privilege of enjoying the best in symphonic music.

This year the quota has been 



Every spring bids are extended to a group of girls who have in 
some way expressed their interest in music. These girls are 
elected to membership in the Music Study Club in order that 
the club may perpetuate its purpose of arousing and encour- 
aging an appreciation of music among women of Duke University, 
extended to include fifty-five girls. 

Members of each class, members of the staff, or members of various Durham musical organiza- 
tions are invited to the bi-monthly meetings. Programs are generally planned in correlation with 
the University Concert series. A typical program includes a paper on the coming artist appro- 
priately illustrated by campus or Durham artists. The Club, this year, might even be said to have 
had a minor concert series of its own. It has presented the following people in the informal after- 
noon recitals : Miss Julia Wilkinson, violinist and member of the music faculty ; Mr. Henry Bru- 
nisma, pianist and member of the music faculty ; Mr. William P. Twadell of Durham and his 
Choral Group of Durham High School students ; Mr. J. P. Waggoner, baritone 
of Duke University ; the Woman's College String Quartet ; Mrs. Robert Fearing, 
pianist ; and Mr. Harold Morris, pianist and member of the music faculty of 
Teachers' College, Columbia University. 

The spring program included the presentation of the Woman's College Glee 
Club, the Woman's College Orchestra, and the Modern Dance Group in concert. 
The Music Study Club has given the students of the University an unequalled 
opportunity to study music and enjoy it in restful appreciation.

HESPERIAN UNION 



In the early days of Trinity College literary societies formed 
the axis around which the social and non-academic intel- 
lectual life of the college pivoted. Although Hesperian 
Union still sponsors such social functions as its annual pic- 
nic, today the national social fraternities on the campus of 
Duke University have usurped the functions of the old 
literary societies. Yet Hesperian Union reorganized as 
successor to the old Hesperian Literary Society, does have 
a function as definite and important as the function of its 
predecessor. The importance of speaking ability in our present time is great. The need of the 
majority of students for additional opportunity to cultivate this ability is amply served by Hesperian 
Union. 

During the past year Hesperian Union has actually afforded Duke students an opportunity for 
self-development and self-expression in speech through general participation in discussions, de- 
bates, and open-forums upon questions of current interest in the social and political field. Topics 
discussed during the year included American Foreign Policy, Government Spending, certain cam- 
pus problems, and numerous others. In an attempt to solve the campus problems the organiza- 
tion has engaged in such activities as the sponsoring of a 
dance committee at several dances. Xot only for the pleasure 
of the members of the Union but to enable them to speak 
more intelligently, faculty members have addressed the Un- 
ion on various phases of the above topics during the year. 

Thus, the Hesperian Union adequately serves a worth- 
while purpose.

William Eagles 

President 



The Pre-Medical Society was founded three years ago and since 
that time has endeavored to continue and expand its original 
purposes and aims. In two years the Society has notably ad- 
vanced major purposes : that of being a cooperative center for 
intelligent pre-medical thought, and that of establishing a closer 

relationship between the pre-medical students and the faculties of both the Undergraduate and 
the Medical Schools. Also the Society has served to develop an everlasting sense of the high 
standards of character and responsibility embodied in the medical profession, and to develop the 
correlation of a general cultural background with the more specific pre-medical training. 

This year the activities of the Society have been directed by William Eagles, president. Joe 
Bonnet, vice-president, Gwyn Davis, secretary, and Robert Curry, treasurer, as officers of the club 
have worked with him and given their unfailing support. Maryanne Blount, Eloise Daugherty, 
and Robert Curry have taken care of the social activities of the organization, which included re- 
freshments after regular meetings and the arrangements for the annual Spring Banquet. 

Regular meetings were held every first and third Thursday evenings of each month. The pur- 
pose of the programs have been to point out the best possible preparation for a medical career, 
and to designate future possibilities and trends by suggestions and observations on conditions as 
they are now. Some presentations of medicine and its development along different fields have 
been of general interest to the members. 



326 



PMMEDICAL 

Each year an annual Spring Banquet is held. 
The advisers, Dr. I. E. Gray of the Under- 
graduate School and Dr. F. H. Swett, of Duke 
Medical School, as well as the speakers of the 
year, are invited to attend. Also at that time 
the newly elected officers are installed. 

New members are elected twice a year and 
are formally initiated into the club. Candi- 
dates for membership are considered on the 
basis of their personality, interest in pre-med- 
ical work and a medical career, scholastics, and 
recommendations. 

This year the programs have been quite ben- 
eficial and interesting. In order to give stu- 
dents some definite ideas and information about 
pre-medical preparation for medical school, 
Dr. F. H. Swett of Duke Medical School and 
Dr. William McNeider of Carolina Medical 
School spoke before the club. Other speakers 
were Dr. A. S. Pearse of Duke Undergraduate 
School, who spoke on his travels through Af- 
rica and his medical studies ; and Dr. Wood- 
hall and Dr. Deas of Duke Hospital, who pre- 
sented interesting facts pertaining to brain sur- 
gery and recent drugs. 

In order to provide additional sources of in- 
terest and information, the members of the 
club were invited to attend the monthly meet- 
ings of the Duke Medical Society during the 
year. Also, movies of operations of interest 
have been shown every second and fourth Fri- 
day nights of each month. 

This year the Pre-Medical Society sponsored 
a symposium which included a clinic and trip 
through Duke Hospital, at which time certain 
cases were reviewed with the purpose of point- 
ing out the value of pre-medical subjects and 
training in later practice. The main speaker 
was Dr. William McNeider of Carolina Med- 
ical School. A short round table discussion af- 
terwards enabled the students to ask any ques- 
tions concerning pre-medical and medical work 
which might have arisen. 

The officers have had in mind this year, as 
in the past, one primary motive : to further 
build, improve, and expand the Pre-Medical 
Society into an organization that will always 
have something of lasting benefit to contribute 
to its members.

PEGMM 
CHEMISTRY am 



The William Howell Pegram Chemistry Club 
was organized in January, 1920, and named 
in honor of Dr. William Howell Pegram, the 
first professor of chemistry at Trinity, who was 
at that time professor emeritus. 

As stated by the twelve charter members, 
the club "stimulates interest in chemistry and 
builds an appreciation of the value of chemistry 
in Trinity College." The club also promotes 
friendly social relations between the faculty, 
graduate students, and undergraduates. 

At present the membership of the club in- 
cludes eighty undergraduates, as well as the 
graduate students and the faculty of the Chem- 
istry Department. In order to be eligible for 
membership, a student must be taking, or have 
taken, qualitative analysis (second year chem- 
istry in the usual schedule) and must show a 
sincere interest in chemistry. There is no 
scholarship requirement for the club as it is 
not an honorary organization. 

For twenty years, the Pegram Chemistry 
Club has been an active organization on the 
campus. Meetings are held twice a month and 
every year the club sponsors a Chemistry Show, 
attracting much attention on both campuses. 

The first meeting of this year was an open 
house for prospective members and included a 
tour of the chemistry building, where the re- 
search problems on which work was being done 
were explained by the faculty member or the 
graduate student in charge. 

At subsequent meetings speeches were made 
on advances in physiology, chemistry, and med- 
icine by Dr. Hobbs and Dr. Gross of the Chem- 
istry Department, and by Dr. Coolidge of the 
Duke Medical School. Initiation of new mem- 
bers was held at "Crow's Nest," and the Christ-

mas party given before Christmas vacation was 
a gala occasion ; both students and faculty had 
a gay time playing with the ten-cent gifts. A 
new development was introduced this year to 
encourage speeches by the students instead of 
the usual faculty members. The first of these 
speeches, made by Henry Brown and Bob Bae- 
der, was on photography. Another achieve- 
ment this year was Dr. Gross' gift of a ping- 
pong set for the purpose of lowering the cas- 
ualty list of the graduate students, which had 
grown rather large through daily football 
games. 

For the past three years the club has awarded 
the Pegram Chemistry Club Prize, consisting 
of a Junior membership in the American Chem- 
ical Society, to that student, whether a mem- 
ber or non-member of the club, who is taking 
a senior-graduate chemistry course and has 
made the highest quality point average in his 
courses in chemistry, physiology, and math- 
ematics. 

The symbol of the club is a single crystal 
representing its goals : purity, clearness, bril- 
liance, and symmetry. These four aims are 
the qualities the club seeks to encourage in its 
members.

BENCH and EAR 





The Bench and Bar Society, organ- 
ized in 1938, has rapidly gained a 
place of influence and leadership 
on the campus, and today has a 
membership of over fifty pre-legal 
students from both campuses. 

It grew out of a desire for a co- 
operative organization in which 
pre-legal students might obtain the 
necessary knowledge and associa- 
tions to enable them to appreciate, 
discuss, and solve, intelligently, 
many of the questions and prob- 
lems arising in their minds. 

The society aims to establish a 
closer relationship between pre-le- 
gal students and the faculties of 
both the Undergraduate and Law 
Schools. In doing so, it has con- 
stantly endeavored to develop 
among pre-legal students an ever- 
increasing sense of the high stand- 
ards of character and responsibility 
embodied in the legal profession. 
The Society resolves to stimulate 
within the minds of the members a 
correlation of a general practical 
background with the more specific 
pre-legal training. 

The Society has had the full co- 
operation of the Law School Fac-

DUKE DADS 
DAY CLUB 




Edward L. Fike 

Secretary 





Thomas J. Davis 
President 



J. L. Robb 
Vice President 

The Duke Dads' Club is the organization of the 
fathers of Duke men who attend the annual cel- 
ebration of Dads' Day on the campus. The 
club was organized on the occasion of the first 
Dads' Day in 1935, primarily through the ef- 
forts of Fred N. Cleaveland, '37, first Secre- 
tary-Treasurer. Membership is automatically 
achieved by attending a Dads' Day program. The purpose of this 
organization is to foster among the fathers of Duke men a clearer in- 
sight into the University's life, purpose, faculty, and program. Dads' 
Day, scheduled each fall, is sponsored by the student Y. M. C. A. and 
the University. All fathers of undergraduate men are invited to the 
campus at this time. 

As in previous years, the 1939 Dads' Day program was held on a 
week-end, many of the dads arriving on Friday and remaining through 
Sunday. A Faculty-Dads Reception followed the Duke-Wake Forest 
football game. The highlight of the day was the banquet in the eve- 
ning attended by 500 fathers and sons. Following the banquet was 
the annual meeting of the Duke Dads' Club. Three hundred and 
fifty-three fathers joined the Club.

Farewell To Duke 



Persons who have helped 



with the Chanticleer 



In every undertaking there are those who stay behind the scenes yet whose help is often more 
important than could possibly be estimated. There is always a hesitation when one thinks of 
mentioning these people because we are afraid some deserving person will be omitted. Never- 
theless, these persons have made contributions that cannot be ignored. 

Mr. A. A. Wilkinson, Mr. Ben Patrick, Mr. Ted Mann, Mr. Walter Shackelford, and Mrs. 
Rebecca Sprinkle of the University News Service have contributed liberally of time, experience, 
and materials. The friendly advice of Mr. J. H. Hardison of Edwards & Broughton Co., Mr. 
Gordon Brightman of Jahn & Oilier Engraving Co., Mr. A. A. Lubersky and Mr. William 
Deighton of The David J. Molloy Co., and Mr. Tom Daniel and Mr. Fay Smith of the Daniel & 
Smith Studio has made our venture a success and our business contacts pleasant and profitable. 
To work with our beauty judge, Mr. John Powers and his able assistant Miss Em Locker, was 
a series of pleasant experiences. As in years gone by, Mr. Charles E. Jordan, our faculty adviser, 
Mr. H. R. Dwire of the Department of Public Relations, and Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson Persons 
of the Women's College served to place at our disposal the aid of the entire University Community. 

For the advice and services that these persons have so willingly given, this editor and this staff 
are sincerely grateful.

■I • The girl friend told me that — and I can sym- 

]K^v pathize with her. Matter of fact, it's no fun for 
■ma—iggh* me { f ee 2 i^e a damp seal— with my top-shirt 
all clammy and wet from perspiration. That's 
why I wear a Hanes Undershirt! 

Gentlemen, you need a blotter when it's hotter. And 
that's what a Hanes Undershirt is! Even though it rests as 
light as a feather on your chest, it soaks up perspiration 
with its soft, absorbent knit. Evaporation is even and 
rapid. You actually feel cooler all over 
. . . and your top-shirt keeps a lot neater! 

See your Hanes Dealer today. He'll 
show you some Hanes Undershirts 
— and notice how long they are. 
There's plenty of length to tuck deep 
inside your shorts and save uncomfort- 
able wadding at the waist. Get Hanes 
Shorts, too — full-cut, color-fast broad- 
cloth. Or try Hanes Crotch-Guard 
Sports or Shorts. P. H. Hanes Knitting

Back 



in 



1911 



When the Supreme Court of the United States rendered the decisions 
that resulted in the dissolution of the American Tobacco Company and 
The Standard Oil Company, Duke students had already learned to rely 
on Pritchard-Bright & Company for "Tomorrow's Styles Today." 

Since 1911 Duke University has grown into one of the world's greatest 
institutions of learning. Its service to mankind is being felt throughout 
the world. Our thousands of warm friendships among Duke faculty, 
alumni and students is one of our proudest possessions. 

Today, as in 191 1, we renew our pledge to serve you with only the finest 
apparel, and at prices as low as first quality will permit.

'What's This About 
Trinity College?" 

Old files reveal that among the topics most 
discussed during our early years was the 
possibility of Trinity College moving to 
Durham. That step was taken in 1892, for 
which The Fidelity Bank can be very thank- 
ful. Thankful because we were selected to 
serve Trinity's, and afterward Duke Uni- 
versity's banking needs; thankful because 
our city received a cultural balance.
